What do I do when an employee leaves?

To process a leaver, follow these steps:

  1. Enter a leaving date and final pay date on the employee's Tax Details tab.
  2. If they are in a pension scheme, you may be prompted to copy the leaving details to the pension membership record.
  3. Use Pay Employees to calculate their final wages.*
  4. Once the final pay run is confirmed and sent to HMRC, go back to the employee's 'Tax Details' tab to produce a P45.

*If you have already paid the final wages, skip step 3. The next time you pay your remaining employees, the system will automatically include information about the leaver in your RTI submission.
