Per Diems

Hi All,

We have the following requirement and need your help on how this can be captured:

If employee raises a travel request, the system should calculate per-diem automatically based upon the number of days/destination/ region/country. This needs to be done as a payment before travel.


Any ideas of how this can be implemented?



Regards,

Avi

    Hi Avi,

    As said by Sigi, there is no standard functionality to calculate per-diems when raise the travel request.

    But we have the option to calculate the estimated amount for per-diems. Try with that.

    The main purpose of estimated cost is, to pay the amount to employee before going to trip based on the trip duration and costs.

    Let me know if it's useful, I will provide some more data on this estimated casts.

    Hi Avi,

    from my knowledge there is no such function available in SAP standard travel solution.

    Advances needs to be entered manual without any automatic per diem calculation.

    Also if you planning an enhancement I guess this would be very tricky to get the right figures and with a very high effort and maintenance cost.

    Per diem calculation will be only calculated in expense management.

    I know this customer request very well but at the end nobody would have implemented an own customer solution for that.

    Best regards,

    Sigi

    Hi Avi,

    When travel requests are created from R/3 then there is no functionality to select region at the travel request screen and have you maintained Per Diems based on regions or on country basis?

    If travel request are created using the ESS portal then standard the region functionality is available and system calculates the Per Diem amount based on the rates maintained for the combination of Country and Region but it is available in ESS portal only.

    Regards 😊

      As I already said - this customer request is known but no solution available in SAP standard.

      Payments before the trip can be only paid by advance process.

      Calculation is manually - just enter an amount.

      If you have something automated - you have to build it. Effort is to high - therefore I do not recommend this.

      This is my view on this topic. Maybe Andy can explain his solution in more detail.... I do not know this.
