You may also need to delete the company in order to set it up again from scratch.

There are a few steps you need to complete in order for the company to be deleted, and if required to allow your Payroll to set up the company again for Sage HR.

⚠️CAUTION: You should only follow these steps if you already currently use Sage HR Online Services.

📎NOTE: If you use the Sage HR modules, for example Leave Management, you should export all the relevant information first from Sage HR before you delete the company. This is to help you re-set up the modules. For more information about this, contact Sage HR Support using the chat icon on the bottom right.

In order to delete the company from Sage HR Online Services and then set it up again there are a few steps you need to complete:

  1. Complete the form to request deletion of the company from the Online Services portal.

  2. To set up the company again, you will then need to send your data in for repair, so that Sage can reset some information in the background.
