Hi All,
i would like to understand the difference between wagetypes in infotype 8 and infotype 14?
In our system landscape, we have a few wagetypes for allowances which are currently maintained in Infotype 14.
Can anyone please explain the difference between maintaining a wage type in infotype 8 and infotype 14?

what are the implications of moving a wagetype from infotype 8 to infotype 14?
Is there any way to distinguish between wagetypes that are pensionable and non pensionable?

For any Payroll related query, it's always better to mention your Country code since it may have an impact on the reply.

WTs on IT0008 are usually part of the "Annual Salary" and are often linked to Salary Grids and influenced by Partial Period Parameters, while WTs on IT0014 are more often set values controlled by Constants and PCRs. Please consult the documentation available in the IMG (t-code = spro), at, or elsewhere on the web.

Regarding "pensionable and non pensionable" WTs, that should be controlled through a Cumulator in Table View V_512W_D, and for Country Code 07 (Canada), it would be Cumulator 20 (plus 18, 18, 21 and maybe 71).

Hi Remi,

Thank you for your reply. We are using GB Payroll (Country Grouping 08), and in our current system landscape, we have a wagetype - Team leader allowance which is part of infotype 0008 (Basic pay).

And now, we are trying to move this wagetype to Infotype15.; and im trying to understand the impact of this.

An Allowance on IT0008 will be affected by Statutory Holidays and Unpaid Absences the same way as the Basic Salary, and depending on your configuration, it may even be taken into account when setting the Rate for Overtime. Furthermore, it could be Indirectly Valuated (through a Pay Scale in v_t510 or a Valuation Basis in v_512w_b).

An Allowance on IT0014 is usually more for a Fixed Periodic Value, but through configuration of the WT in v_t511 and Payroll PCRs, you should be able to achieve a similar result.

An Allowance on IT0015 needs to be created for every Payroll Period and is usually for a Fixed Value.
