Great question, training2!

 

By re-activating your employee in the system, you'll continue where you left off with them before they left your company. The system won't allow you to re-add a new employee with the same name and SIN #, even if the original employee is inactive. 

 

Let me know if you have questions. 

 

Cheers!

The ROE will also continue from where you previously left off. If you have any concerns about how this works, please reach out to an accountant for more advice. If you're not already connected to an accountant, feel free to connect with one of our ProAdvisor users here: Find a ProAdvisor

Hi there, 

 

Thanks for reaching out here in the Community. It's great that one of your employees will be returning. I'd be happy to shed some light on this.

If you've made the employee inactive in the system, you can simply change their status to make them active again. This is the simplest way to go about things, as all their employee information will already be set up. If the employee's information has changed, such as address or phone number, simply edit the employee by clicking their name, and selecting the small pencil icon next to Profile

 

That's all there is to it. Let me know if you have any other questions.

 

Have a great day!

Thank you, AddieB for your quick response! He returned to school and now back :) I am worry about his hours, I mean how it will be recorded in the future. If I change his status - does it mean that his work hours will start from the new date or it will continue from the first time he started work? Just don't understand how it will look like in the system. Thank you soooo much!

Thank you so much, AddieB! Still thinking about this situation :) What about ROE? Actually there is one ROE in the system. What happen with this ROE when we prepare the next one (when he will back to school again)?

Hi there,

 

It's important that as a business owner, you have the proper tools to record changes in employment in your accounting software. Luckily, QuickBooks Online makes this process easy for you. You're going to reactivate the employee in your account. 

 

Here's what you'll do: 

 

1. Click the Employees tab on the left navigation menu. 

2. Under the Employee list, from the Active employees drop-down menu, select Inactive employees.

3. Click the employee you'd like to reactivate. 

4. Click Edit employee.

5. Select the Employment tab at the top of the page. 

6. Change their status to Active

7. Click Done

 

That's all there is to it. If you need any further assistance, please reach out to our tech support team.

 

Have a great day!
