As we approach the new 2021/22 tax year, many accountants are evaluating whether they are using the right payroll software to suit their client's needs. There are so many payroll software providers on the market that choosing the right one for your practice can become overwhelming.  

To make it easier for you, we have summarised the key reasons why hundreds of accountants are switching to BrightPay. 

Multi-User Remote Access

All BrightPay licences can be installed on up to 10 PCs, and this means that Multi-user remote icon payroll processing is possible by up to 10 users, or from 10 different locations. In conjunction with BrightPay Connect, BrightPay has a new ‘version checking’ feature when opening an employer, and an ‘other users check’ when opening an employer to prevent the risk of conflicting payroll copies.

Furlough Pay Calculator and Claim Report

Batch Payroll Processing Capabilities

This will allow you to save time on manual, repetitive tasks, especially if you have a number of payrolls that don’t change from week to week or where a large number of single-director companies are on the payroll software. 

Integration with Accounting and Pension Systems
