Payroll Challenge

Hello Payroll Experts!!

I am calling it Challenge because whoever I spoke to hasnu2019t given me a clear answer, and most of the time it has been u201Cnot possibleu201D.


1. There is a Wage Type (which is defined as neither Payment nor Deduction). Lets call it W1

2. W1 has following settings related to classes:

a. Processing Class 1: Assignment to valuation bases = 0 (Wage type is not included in a valuation basis)

b. Processing Class 20: Cumulation and storage at end of gross part = 1 (Transfer unchanged)

c. Cumulation Class 1: Total gross amount = Unchecked

d. Cumulation Class 10: Net payments/deductions = Unchecked

e. Reset all classes have either default or Zero value.


We are defining a Wage W1 which neither adds nor deducts the salary of an employee. However, I want W1 to be processed in Payroll and finally when I do the posting it should be able to post to respective G/L account.

Reason for activity:

Client wants to record the amount of W1 in HR, so that later a report can be generated. However, W1 is not a payment or deduction. It is a Cost (Training Cost, Visa Cost etc), which has to be linked to an employee.

I agree there is a work around to this issue; however, I am more interested in knowing if the above logic is right and will I be able to get the desired result of posting the Wage Type value to G/L Account, without making payment or deduction to employee payroll?

I hope you enjoy this case study as much as I am enjoying to research on it.

    If it is not a payment or deduction then why do you want to post it?

    Did you talk to FI person coz these costs (Training cost or visa cost) are liability for the business and somebody needs to bear those cost. You can't really keep it open for no reason.

    As well can you elaborate your sentence "Wage W1 which neither adds nor deducts the salary of an employee" ????? If you are not processing that WT then why do you want to create it this way which is not making any difference anywhere?

    I think this requirement needs a revision.

      I think the charateristics you're defining would be sufficient. Just let me know if you need further help in testing the WT.

      Good Luck for BBP.
