Saudi Arabia Payroll Localization

Hi Experts,

My client is using SAP since 2008 under country grouping 99 and now wants to use the KSA Payroll Localisation released by SAP under country grouping 24.

As a first step, We wanted to create new personal areas and assign that to Country grouping 24 so that with the help of a Personal Action, we could move the employees from 99 to 24 country grouping.

Now we are facing a challenge since the new personal area when assigned to the same company code, the country grouping can either remain as 99 or 24 for all personal areas to the same company code ie...when assigning 24 to the new personal area, the old personal areas linked to the same company code are also getting assigned to 24 which will affect our existing configuration.

Please advice the best way to implement the Localization without disturbing the old configurations.

    • Hi Jeffy,

      is you change Personnel Number - i.e. terminate employment and hire again, then there are no inconsitencies.

      Inconsistencies occur, if you change personnel area etc in PA0001 and VIEKN in IT0003 accordingly. Then there are some infotypes, which may expect special data in country specific PAnnnn tables (most often in IT0002, but also seen in 0007, 0008, 0016, 2001). And then there's the config depending on the MOLGA or on the groupings in T001P, which may lead to errors due to checks and obligatory fields in each dynpro.

      You avoid the bulk of it, if you allign T001P and T588M for your new personnel areas and MOLGAs/VIEKNs with the old ones.

      kind regards

    Hi jeffy,

    If you are changing a country grouping from 99 to 24 in with assignment to Personnel area and subarea, then its ok, but i think country grouping is also relevant to Company code also. So, please check the Company code assignment with country grouping with your FICO guys.

    Hence a company code will also get changed in this kind of scenario.

      That exactly is the problem. Since the system is already running in production live, getting a new company code is ruled out.

      Is there any other way where we can bring the new personal areas to country grouping 24 while retaining the old personal areas to 99? The condition is both the personal areas should be assigned with the same company code.
