Free Licence Registration

We have created a free version of BrightPay to aid single-employee companies with their PAYE Modernisation duties. Simply complete the form below and we'll email your licence key to you.


Check your email for your Free Licence code.

More than one employee? Purchase a standard licence here.

What are the limitations of the Free Licence?

The free licence allows for just one employee in the tax year. It was introduced for the 2019 to aid single-employee companies with their PAYE Modernisation duties. The one employee limit covers the entire tax year, and is used up even if that employee leaves employment.

Free licence customers are not entitled to support via phone – if you require phone support, please consider a Standard Licence.

How do I use my Free Licence key?

If your BrightPay trial has expired, then when you launch BrightPay it will ask for a licence key – simply type or paste in your Free Licence key.

If your trial has not ended, then the licence screen can be accessed from the Upgrade Licence button on the welcome screen or from Help → Licence after opening an employer file.

Where do I get help?

Free Licence customers are entitled to free email support. Visit our support page to get in touch or email us directly at (be sure to check our office opening hours).

If you require phone support, you must purchase a Standard licence.
