So many features. So little clutter.

By far, the majority of the effort that went into creating BrightPay was in the design of the user interface. BrightPay gives visual priority to the most common payroll tasks, and shows or hides various features only as they become relevant. When payroll is straightforward, BrightPay keeps it simple. When payroll gets complicated, BrightPay makes it easy.

  • Basic, daily and hourly pay.
  • Benefit in kind.
  • Parenting benefit.
  • Customisable additions and deductions.
  • Pension scheme deductions.

  • All PRSI categories.
  • Additional Superannuation Contribution (ASC).
  • Emergency basis.
  • Live calculation, with preview.
  • Starters and leavers.
  • Print, email, and export payslips.
  • Employee calendar.
  • Holiday pay.
  • Flexible reporting.
  • Track Revenue payments.

PAYE Modernisation made simple.

From 1st January 2019, in the most significant reform of the PAYE system in Ireland since its introduction, employers no longer submit end-of-year payroll returns, but are rather required to report their employees' pay and deductions to Revenue each time they are paid. BrightPay not only ensures you are kept fully compliant with the new requirements, but makes it really clear and easy.

  • Easily import your Revenue certificate (which is required to authenticate your submissions to Revenue).
  • Check for Revenue Payroll Notifications (RPN) each pay period, and keep your employees up to date in line with Revenue's instructions. Where RPN updates are detected, they can be previewed and applied with a single click.
  • Send a Payroll Submission Request (PSR) for each employee payment. BrightPay provides a full print/email-friendly preview of PSR content, and walks you through the process of sending to Revenue.
  • BrightPay tracks the state of all your employees each pay period, and alerts you where RPNs need to be checked for or updated from as well as where PSRs need to be sent (or re-sent).
  • At a glance comparison and reconciliation of the tax liabilities recorded in BrightPay against the tax liabilities as reported by Revenue.
  • BrightPay stores all Revenue communication logs for your reference, and relays any submission errors back to you in a clear, user-friendly format.
