    The date field u201CForced retro accounting as ofu201D is used to enter a date in the past, and to force recalculation of payroll results up to that date.

    Example: A processing class value for a wage type is changed, or a new rule was introduced

    in the payroll schema, and for business reasons you want payroll to recalculate certain wage types using the new rule. In these types of situations, payroll can be forced to make retroactive adjustments using the date field in the driver screen.

    if you want the system to pay the new rate - for payments already processed by SAP, then you need to change the constant, as at the date you want the change to be effective from, and then force retro in payroll processing (field "Forced retro.accounting as of" on payroll processing screen)

    this will force payroll to go back to the period you specifiy and recalculate the payments for all employees based on the new figure.

    but be warned this will recalculate all payments, deductions and probably statutory stuff too - all the way back, so simluate it first to make sure there is nothing else that changes that you do not want changed - especially if it is across tax years!

    Best Regards,
