Our support lines are extremely busy as a result of the Temporary Wage Subsidy Scheme being administered through payroll. Our Covid-19 help documentation will generally answer your query.

Also, please note that all of our staff are working from home and may be answering your call in a sometimes chaotic home environment. Please be patient with us.

Re-hiring employees after Covid-19 lay-off

 

Where employers re-hire staff who have been laid off due to Covid-19 or where one of their employees is re-hired by another employer, Revenue will issue an amended instruction which must be downloaded from ROS again and re-imported into the payroll software.


Employers/agents should therefore check before each pay run for any amended Revenue instruction.

 

Please note: where all employees have been processed as leavers within Thesaurus Payroll Manager, when ready to re-hire, the payroll can be advanced forward without updating each period in between.

This must be done before the new employees/re-hires are added to the payroll.

  • Simply go to ‘Update Payslips’ and you will be asked for the period number you want to continue at.

  • You will be prompted to enter the period number prior to the period you need to process e.g. if the next period employees are to be paid is week 21, enter week 20 at the prompt.

 

Also, when re-hiring an employee who has previously been made a leaver in the 2020 tax year, simply use the 'Leaver Rejoining?' option in Add/Amend Employees. This facility will allow you to 'Claim subsidy for this employee' or 'Do not claim subsidy for this employee' as per your requirements. A new Revenue instruction should then be checked for and imported into the software.
