Pay a leaver mid month

Created on  | Last modified on 


This guide explains how to process pay for a leaver earlier in the pay period within Sage 50cloud Payroll.


If you have an employee who is leaving, you may need to pay them earlier than your normal pay day. For example, you run a monthly payroll and normally pay on the 25th of the month, but you have to make an employee a leaver and pay them on the 15th.

The steps to do this are quick and simple. Let's take a look at them now.


  1. Click Payroll then click Change Process Date.
  2. Set your process date to the date you want to pay the employee.
  3. On the Employee List, select the required employee then process your payroll as normal for this employee. 
    TIP: It's likely you'll need to reduce the employee's pay in Enter Payments if they've left mid-month. 
  4. After you update the period, make the employee a leaver.
  5. Submit the full payment submission (FPS).
    This includes the one employee. The rest of your employees are included on the next FPS when you process and update them.
