Creating an Employee

You can license your Sage One Payroll service for:

  • A maximum of 5 employees.
  • A maximum of 10 employees.
  • A maximum of 15 employees.


To create an employee

  • 1. Employees > Create Employee.

(Mandatory fields are marked with an asterisk.)

  • 3. Click Save.

You have created a new employee record.


Employee status


The next time you view the employee list, you’ll see that the new employee is listed.

Check the Status column to see whether further action is needed to make the employee active in the payroll.


Starter Information for HMRC


The employee is now active in the payroll. HMRC is informed of this automatically as part of the relevant Full Payment Submission (FPS).


To create an employee after the pay run in which they started

If you encounter this situation, it’s best to contact Sage One Payroll Support for guidance.

There is no way to add an employee to a completed pay run. However, Support may be able to suggest a workaround that deals with the situation.
