  • To re-hire an employee who has previously left in the same tax year, go to Employees and select the leaver record.

  • Click the Re-hire button on the yellow bar:

  • On the next screen, complete each field accordingly and choose which details you would like to copy from the employee's previous record

  • Click Create when complete:

  • A new employee record will now be set up for the employee. 

Please note: it is recommended that the employee record is reviewed before processing any payroll for the employee. Any additional or missing employee information can be manually entered, if required.
