Some basic settings must be made in Customizing to be able to run payroll in the SAP HR HCM System.
•A period parameter and a date modifier are assigned to each payroll area. The period parameter determines whether payroll is run monthly, quarterly, weekly or for several weeks.
•Payroll periods must be generated for each combination of period parameters and date modifiers assigned to a payroll area.
•Date modifier links the additional date types with a payroll calendar.
•Control record must be created for every payroll area. This control record controls the individual stages of payroll.
Payroll Control Record
A control record must be created in Customizing for each payroll area before it can be used. To Maintain Personnel Control Record use transaction PA03.
The payroll control record has the following functions:
•It locks the personnel numbers, for which payroll should be run, so that master data cannot be changed which might affect payroll data when payroll is being run.
•If the master data for the personnel number is being changed for which payroll is run, it locks the payroll for that time, so that nobody can run the payroll during this time
•You can also get information on what is the next payroll period for which regular payroll should be run, up to what date is retroactive accounting carried out and what status does the payroll currently have.
When payroll is run master data and time data changes are not permitted. Also payroll must not be run during master data maintenance. This can be controlled by payroll control record.
Phases available during payroll run
•If the function Release Payroll is selected from the menu, it locks the personnel number attached to payroll area under consideration. Thus, it will not allow any changes to infotypes for this personnel number. Though changes that affect future are still permitted. This function must be executed before starting payroll.
•If Check Result is selected, it doesn’t allow you to start payroll for the payroll area concerned. This way, you can check the payroll result, as nobody can change the payroll result.
•If Corrections is selected, lock on master data and time data records for the selected payroll area are released. You can make changes in infotypes for personnel numbers having selected payroll area.
