    Hi,

    probably not the answer you're looking for but the HR process needs to adapted.

    Transfers from one payroll area to another can only be performed at the beginning of the new PY - period.

    You cannot change payroll area for a period already accounted in a different payroll area.

    What you have to do is leave the employee in the old payroll area up to the date they were already calculated, and change the payroll area effective the day after the end date of his/her last payroll result.

    Please note any other retro changes will be recalculated properly.

    I do have one comment with regards to one payroll area for each personnel area.

    The payroll areas required in a company in SAP must be derived based on pay date and period frequency rather than personnel area. A payroll area should group all employee who have the same payroll periodicity, pay period, pay date and retroaccounting date limit in the company.

    This design of SAP Payroll allows you to have the minimum required payroll areas, and will be more cost-effective for the company.
