Wage type Query

Hi Colleagues,

I have a query regarding Wage types. We are shifting Payroll for one country from a system to a new system. Have you a

any idea whether we should create new wage types or should we copy the existing ones. And if we can copy how

can we copy from one system to another.

Regards,

Navneet

    The WT parameters (in T511 and T512W just to name two) vary from one Country to an other, so it would not be recommended to copy WT from one Country to an other.

    On the other hand, using models from the new Country, you could create WTs for the new Country with the same number and description as in the original Country.

    Hi,

    Did I understand correctly?

    Are you moving from one SAP system to another SAP system?

    If this is the case, I think using all the wage types as is would not be a problem.

    I don't think you need any copying.

    Hi Colleagues,

    I think i will explain the scenario one more time. The Payroll set up for Turkey is on a system which will be stopped after 5 months. So we need to move the entire HR setup of turkey to our existing System which is used by all other plants except for Turkey.

    So now i am wondering about the wage types which are used in existing system, how do i move this to our system where we will integrate Turkey

    Will i require to create new Wage types copying from International Wage types as there is no standard Payroll Turkey. COuntry code is 47.

    Or i can copy the wage types from old system and bring them to our existing system. And if yes how do i do it...will be requiring basis assitance or i can do it myself.

    Please help

    Regards,

    Navneet.

    Hi Sikander,

    In the new system , for turkey there is no payroll/no wage types. But for Belgium wage types exists.

    So...

    1. Acc to above reply, i can create wage types of turkey by copying from 99 and assigning to country code 47.

    2. Also, one more confirmation, since there are lot of Z payroll reports, So is it possible to use the same Wage type name as used already in Turkey system. Since wage type is country dependent so i can create wage types with same name with which they are currently existing in old system. Even that name can be used by belgium wage type already( can be a possibility). So wanted to confirm again( have already asked this question in another post) but i wanted to be double sure before i speak to client about this.

    Please help

      Hi,

      What you need is to migrate existing configuration. Copying wage types is good, but this is not migration, as you will have to check hundreds of settings: processing classes, cumulation classes, and so on.

      So what you need to do is:

      1. Deifne what tables should be migrated: wage types: T512W, T512T, T511, etc. Most of them are molga dependent - this is what you need.

      2. Create customizing transport request with key 47*. Key may vary, check key fields for the above tables in SE11.

      3. Ask basis to download transport request from old system and upload in the queue of new system.

      4. Import transport to the new system. All the wage types for molga 47 will be migrated.

      Cheers!
