Trip variant for different Fixed per diems in SAP FI TV

Hi Experts,

I am in process of configuring Travel management inhouse. The IMG says for different reimbursement & travel groupings we can create distinct Trip provision variants.

My question is cant we handle by creating one trip variant & creating different reimbursement groups for different set of employee groups.

Please suggest as i am new to Travel Management Module.

Best Regards

Sharma

    Hi,

    >>My question is cant we handle by creating one trip variant & creating different reimbursement groups for different set of employee groups.

    Yes, you can, but the question is, whether it functionally makes sense for your business scenario. The Trip Provision Variants "project" a technical foundation of laws, i.e. if you have several groups of employees for whose a different foundation of law exists, let's say private sector in Switzerland (Morei 02), private Sector in Germany (Morei 01) and public sector federal Germany (Morei D1), then you pretty much have to use different provision variants (Moreis) because lot's of logic is hardcoded and checked against the Pernr's Morei. If you have, however, only one "law base" with subsections and maybe further distinguishments on organisational and business level, then you can use one trip provision variant and distinguish between sub-scenarios with means of trip control parameters and assign respective characteristics in IT0017 accordingly.

    I hope that helps for a better general understanding of how FI-TV operates.

    Cheers, Lukas

    Hi Lukas,

    Thanks for your detailed response. Since only one law base is required i will be going ahead for one trip variant only.

    One more question, how do we configure mileage & Per Diem reimbursement rules so that an employee can claim for his entitlement & below his entitlement too. For instance i have a Sr Executive who is eligible for highest class of Travel but if he has traveled by his own car then he should get reimbursement. The customizing suggest only one category can be assigned to each group which is then assigned to employee.So either i can assign him Luxury car or Personal car mileage only.Please help.

    Regards
