We are offering a free BrightPay single employer licence for micro businesses with up to three employees per tax year. This limit includes both previous (leavers) and current employees in the tax year.

This includes free email support, but does not include any form of phone support – if you require phone support, please consider a Standard Licence.

Also, the free version of BrightPay does not include support for CIS (Construction Industry Scheme) or employee's Expenses and Benefits (inc. P11D). If you need these features, please purchase a Standard Licence.

Licence Duration

BrightPay licences are sold per tax year.

If you purchase the 2018/19 version of BrightPay, you will be able to use it to process payroll for the 2018/19 tax year only. Your licence will not expire, in that you can keep BrightPay installed and revisit the 2018/19 tax year whenever you need. But when you need to process 2019/20 payroll, you will need to purchase a new licence for the new tax year.
