Trip Calculation Issue

Hello Experts,

Please can anybody help with the below:

Our client's system is currently set up so that if an employee goes on a business trip that is less than 8 hours then they are not allowed to claim any per diem. This is fine as this is the client's requirement.

However, for multi day trips the client has different rules and employees can claim 12 Euros per diem for any day less than 8 hours. The issue is that if an employee goes on a multi day trip and if the first day is less than 8 hours the system is not paying any per diem. For example:

The business trip begins on the 8th Jan at 20.00 and ends on the 10th Jan at 19.00. The system calculates this trip as below:

8th Jan - 0 Euros (This should be 12 Euros)

9th Jan - 24 Euros

10th Jan - 12 Euros

For the 8th Jan the system is calculating zero but should be calculating 12 Euros.

Any ideas?

Thank you

    Hi Mike,

    are you talking about new regulations in Germany for 2014?

    There are LCP's out.

    Check KBA 1902231 (in here you will find corresponding notes to this issue)

    Best regards,

      You should you always use standard solution provided by SAP!!

      Badi implementation is only needed if SAP does not provided specific content.

      So answer is simple use the standard for this requirement as all German companies will use in a first step. You are even free to set up different customization to your implementation.

      But what you have described in your entry - yes this is done via the listed notes because it is a legal requirement and SAP has to provide this to the solution "for free"!! (Ok customer pays for software license and maintenance of solution)

      Just check again KBA as mentioned. In there you will find all notes related to this issue:
