Purpose of Account key 1001 and transaction key HRA

Hi Team,

This is regarding an issue wherein the Payroll posting is posting to prepaid Asset Account which is configured in transaction key HRA and Account key 1001.

I have not worked in HR FI integration earlier and I am now trying to understand how this GL Account is getting picked up in the Payroll posting.

I am aware that this GL Account gets picked due to one of the below reasons:

  • There are several company codes
  • There are different posting dates
  • There are postings to G/L accounts, customer accounts, vendor accounts
  • This is specified in the step

However I see that there are no several company codes or posting dates involved. Also there are no vendors or customers involved. Please help me to understand how the posting variant can influence to pick the GL Account in question.

    You can refer to SAP help portal.
    Company code is assigned to chart of account in OB62. and symbolic account is configured under a chart of account.

    You can check the IMG document in IMG node Reporting for Posting Payroll Results to Accounting .
    there is information about how to create posting variants, like below. the table is V_T52E2 .

    3. In the step Create Posting Variants, you must set the Post to company-code clearing account indicator for the variants that you use. Otherwise, payables and receivables between company codes are not posted to company code clearing accounts, and remain as the balance on the document split account for the company codes affected.

    And you can check Prepare Cross-Company Code Transactions :

    Hope above information could help you.
