Posting to FI - Regular Vs Accrual

Hi Experts,

Just wondering how to differentiate between a regular payroll posting from the month end accrual posting in the PPDHD or PPDIT. I have a requirement to create a custom report for payroll analysis and now it brings in accrual postings into the report.

Thanks in advance

Joe

    Hi,

    Please check with your functional person for logic that I am suggesting.

    Every regular pay wage type will be assigned to a normal GL account type like expense or balance sheet as either Normal or Accrual posting account and this is what you want.

    Thanks,

    Most companies pay salary on last day of the month

    Some companies may pay on 1st of next day month and in such case accrual comes into picture

    The logic is to book the expenses in the month for which it is related even if they paid next month

    March salary paid on 31st March will be normal

    March salary paid on 1st April will be a accrual and this needs to be show in March

    Hi,

    Just clarifying couple of points. This is a bi-weekly payroll. So MEA is always in picture. I am looking for a header level flag or type which differentiate between a regular and accrual payroll posting. I can differentiate the expenses accounts by selecting the accrual GL account like Ameet mentioned. However, I am looking for something more specific which can act as a selection screen parameter.

    Thanks

    • Thank you Srinivasa. I was leaning towards your suggestion and already created a new document type in FI. Also changed the posting variant to reflect the new document type for MEA. I was trying to find out any other flag in the HR header tables rather than reading the document type from BKPF. It seems there is no direct flagging in HR side of the payroll posting whcih can distinguish between regular and accrual.

      Thanks anyway,

      Joe
