Re-instating Leavers

Should an employee who has previously left your employment during the current or previous tax year return, the employee's previous record can be seamlessly copied and completed accordingly.


To do this, go to Process Icon No. 1 or Employees > Add/Amend Employees



Click the button Leaver Rejoining?




Former employees from this year and last year which the software detects a record for will be displayed on screen. Simply double click on the employee record you wish to copy.

The new employee record will now be created.

Simply complete each screen accordingly with any additional information required, paying particular attention to the employee's Revenue Details section which will require you to enter the employee's new start date as well as the information taken from their most recent P45 given to you.

When the new record is complete, click Update to save the employee record.




The new employee record will now be added to your listing of employees.
