ROS Digital Cert - A Must Have for PAYE Modernisation

The computer that you run your 2019 BrightPay software on will need to have your ROS Digital Cert installed on it. If you are currently able to log into ROS from your computer, then you are fine. Otherwise, you should copy the cert (the .p12 or .p12.bac file) from the machine that you use for ROS to the machine that you use for processing payroll. This is something you might want to do before the 1st of January 2019.

PAYE Modernisation Changes for business with separate branches / offices

PAYE Modernisation does not lend itself to operating separate branches / offices using the same employer registration number nor does it lend itself to processing groups of staff separately e.g. directors on one payroll and other staff on a second payroll. There are various reasons for this including:

  • full visibility of all payroll data per digital cert
  • difficulty in ensuring uniqueness of employment IDs
  • ensuring that line item IDs are not duplicated 

An employer can have as many employer registration numbers as they want. The solution is to register another number and obtain another cert.
