BrightPay and FreeAgent

Why is the BrightPay & FreeAgent API useful? 

The BrightPay API facility eliminates manually exporting a payroll journal file, saving and formatting the file, and uploading it to FreeAgent. This would be particularly time-consuming for an accountant with multiple clients. The API functionality will now automate this tedious, repetitive and time-consuming task. By using BrightPay and FreeAgent together, users will be able to increase efficiency, avoid duplication of efforts and reduce the possibility of manual processing errors. 

What does BrightPay & FreeAgent API do? 

BrightPay offers full API integration with FreeAgent allowing the payroll software and accounting software system to directly communicate with each other. BrightPay will produce the payroll journal in a file format that is unique to FreeAgent allowing users to easily upload their payroll figures directly into the FreeAgent general ledger.  

How does the BrightPay and FreeAgent integration work? 

BrightPay will prepare the payroll journal to include records for payslips across multiple pay frequencies. Each payroll journal file is customised for FreeAgent with compatible files and built-in nominal ledger mapping. Essentially, this mapping tells the payroll where things get posted to in FreeAgent. 

Users can decide if they wish to include individual journal records for each employee, or if they want to merge the employee records into total records for each unique payment date. There is also the option to specify circumstances where amounts are to be mapped to alternate nominal account codes (e.g. depending on period type, directorship, departments, specific rates/additions/deductions, etc.).
