Year-End Legal Changes HR Packages (SAPKE600xx)

Hi Guys,

Every year we have the same problem. When we wanna install the last HR packages of the year then we have to upgrade also some other components like SAP Basis, SAP_APPL,... So under the year that's no problem because we can plan a maintenance window and tests szenario. But to the year end we are waiting for the HR Package than we see which ohter component support packages we have to install too and then we have to do it in one or two days with high risk. Because we are closing the company over the x-mas holidays and no user for testing is available.

Is there a way to find out before the packages will come out which requirements it have?

How do you handel this?

Thanks

    Yes indeed - you should also check the country specific marketplace areas like

    /hrusa

    /hrgb etc

    for any Year End information as well

    The US solution has a Year End program which is well supported

    Best wishes

    Hi Mario

    This information is only released officially via SAP Service Marketplace once validated at the SAP side

    Every country payroll solution may be different, the general guidelines are

    First go to www.service.sap.com/swdc-addinfo -->Schedule for Support Packages --->

    R/3 HR Support Package Schedule

    This will tell you the base package needed for Year End Legal Changes for each country - it should be the

    starting HRSP for any Year End activities going forward.

    You can always check the content of an HRSP in www.services.sap.com/swdc before the stack is confirmed - it will list all the changes by affected component

    - you can check the notes most liable to effect each HR area or Year End

    - this information is usually available in advance of the stack.

    As a general rule of thumb I would only apply an HRSP independantly of the stack or other dependancies if it has been identified as production critical and is also time critical .e Year End due, no window to test the whole stack. This HRSP should also

    be tested specifically for the production critical operation it was brought in to resolve before moving to PRD

    In all cases before implementing an HRSP it is generally advised to

    1) Implement any SNOTE corrections if available

    2) Implement a CLC if available

    3) Implement manually - if steps are available/possible

    In terms of testing - using SNOTE, CLC and manual steps will reduce the scope of the testing required and often eliminate the need for a stack.

    Best wishes

    Hello Mario,

    For US Tax Reporting, please goto service.sap.com/hrusa and here you will see the "Year End 2009" section. I have attached the Year End 2009 letter. Please review this. Please be aware of any stacks that you need to be at as this will require other support packages to be applied.

    Regards,

    Manny
