Our Payroll Process

The system we use to run payroll is called 'Brightpay Connect'. This is an online portal where you can view your company payroll reports and your employees can view their own payslips. The system is fully GDPR compliant.

You must ensure that you pay the relevant payroll taxes to HMRC on time, otherwise late filing penalties may apply.

All HMRC submissions are now made in real time through the RTI (Real Time Information) system.This means that each month before the pay date we make an electronic submission to HMRC to confirm how much you have paid your staff and how much you owe HMRC. It is important you make these payments promptly, as HMRC are able to impose fines otherwise.

If you think you will have difficulties in meeting the payment deadlines please let us know  in advance of the deadline, and we’ll try to negotiate a payment plan with HMRC on your behalf.

More information on the RTI system can be found here  (http://www.hmrc.gov.uk/payerti/) and information on the penalties regime can be found here (http://www.hmrc.gov.uk/payerti/reporting/late-reporting.htm).
