New BSI TUBs applied, do we need retro-calculation?

This is our first year end with SAP. I found there are many BSI TUBs keep coming out to correct previous TUBs for calculating 2008 taxes. We already have 2 payroll periods ran in 2008, should we force retro back to calculate the tax in period 1 of 2008? I asked BSI this question and they told me I don't need retro calculation. But I still don't understand their explanation about how this works.

Thank you.

    A couple of thoughts...

    (1) You need to read the bulletins that BSI releases. These can be found at www.bsi.com. I presume you know how to get there, if not let me know, and I'll provide the steps. The bulletins, for the most part, give an effective date. So, if have a TUB that went to production on, say, 01-Mar-08, and there's a change for an authority that's effective, say, 01-Jan-08, and you have people in that authority, then yes, you'll need to retro those people. However, the effective date of the change is 01-Apr-08, and the changes go up on 01-Mar-08, then no, you won't need to retro.

    (2) Depending on the tax, SAP self-adjusts for Unemployment, FICA, and medicare. However, there are issues where the self-adjusting doesn't work correctly, depending on the situation. I only mention this because I have an oss/sapnet message open with SAP about UI not self-adjusting properly.
