New employee is an old employee.


I have an employee who left in Jan-18 and is back now.

Can I re-use the old employee somehow?

Do I have to set up a new employee and put a full stop at the end of the surname to differentiate them? - This is what Sage needs.

Will there then be a problem as the NI number is the same as a previous employee?

Has anyone solved this?

Hey Steve Ellard,


Thanks for your post and welcome to the community. 


You will need to set the employee up as a new employee and enter their current year to date figures. The system will allow you to use the same name and NI number as the inactive employee :) 


Please let me know if you have further questions,
