If you have employees who are work nights or late evenings, you might have a separate 'night' overtime pay rate for those hours. In Sage HR there is a feature to enable 'Night hours' to allow you to specify a range of hours that during during any shifts, will be considered as night hours.

Once enabled, these "night hours" will appear in a separate column in Excel export - very useful for accountants!

Enable Night hours

  1. Click on your name on the top right, then click Settings.
  2. On the settings menu click SCHEDULING , then click Schedule group.
