IT 0045 - Loans

Repayment Plan:
Salary Slip:

Scenario :1

1. When Employee in Full LOP for the Month.


The solution is depends on the Client Requirement, whether he want Carry forward the Deduction amount to the next payroll period or completely waved off the Regular Repayment and Interest too for the LOP and increase the Regular Repayment one month extra.

Carry forward scenario:

1. Need to change Wage type Arrears Characteristics table V_T51P6



No Deduction Scenario:

1. No need to change any Wage type arrears table.
2. Need to change loan type for installment for that particular period is 0.
3. Extend the Regular Repayment one month more or change the installment amount.

Indirect Valuation of Wage Types

Basically Indirect Valuation of wage types means calculation of amounts of wage types indirectly.

We had recently come across an issue as follows:

Band and grades were given as per below screen shot:

Screenshot from 2014-03-13 15:46:55.png

And requirements were as below:

Screenshot from 2014-03-13 15:47:38.png

We had done this complete configuration through Indirect Valuation.

For the purpose, bands were named as Employee Subgroups in SAP as below:

Screenshot from 2014-03-13 15:49:23.png

Grade was named as Payscale Groups in IT0008.

Customising step is:

SPRO > Personnel Management > Personnel Administration > Payroll Data > Basic Pay > Define EE Subgroup Grouping for PCR and Coll.Agrmt.Prov.

Screenshot from 2014-03-13 15:51:48.png

Check Pay Scale Type

Check Pay Scale Area

Check Assignment of Pay Scale Structure to Enterprise Structure

Determine default for pay scale data

These Steps can be customised as per requirements.

Revise Pay Scale Groups and Levels

For the purpose /TPA wage type was used for entering manual amount for monthly ctc.

1. Conveyance Allowance is fixed Rs. 800. So this can be added in the same table in amount field as shown:

Screenshot from 2014-03-13 15:54:33.png
2. Similary Amounts fixed are for:

LTA - Rs. 5,000.00 pm
Medical Rembursement - Rs. 1250 pm.
Gift Card - Rs. 416 pm

these three are for selected catagories only. So, according to catagories (Payscale group), values will be defaulted in the table V_T510.

The wage type characteristics for these wage type will be entered as INVAL A (Table - V_T511)

Screenshot from 2014-03-13 15:58:05.png

Now, next step is creating Allowance Grouping. Customising step is as below:

Payroll > Payroll India > Pay Scale Groupings > Define Pay Scale Groupings for Allowances

Screenshot from 2014-03-13 15:59:59.png

Assign Pay Scale Groupings for Allowances
Screenshot from 2014-03-13 16:00:32.png

Now in Reimbursements, Allowances and Perks

1. Assign Wage Type Model for Pay Scale Grouping for Allowances

Screenshot from 2014-03-13 16:02:04.png

Here, 20 depicts the number of wage types that will be allowed in IT0008. The same is defaulted in feature LGMST as below:

Screenshot from 2014-03-13 16:03:20.png

Screenshot from 2014-03-13 16:04:00.png

and so on.

2. Maintain Default Wage Types for Basic Pay - In this step we default all the wage types that needs to populate in IT0008 (Basic Pay Infotype), example can be as below:

Screenshot from 2014-03-13 16:05:23.png

3. Maintain Wage Type Characteristics -

This is table V_T511. Here we will determine how the wage type will be calculated based on the matrix provided. This depends on the calculation rules.

4. Maintain Valuation of Base Wage Types

Under this table we determine the percentage of the base wage type to calculate the other wage type. For example, in the matrix provided, Basic is 8.33% of basic pay. The same is maintained as below:

Screenshot from 2014-03-13 16:09:19.png
Also, it is given that for a particular allowance grouping, Basic pay is 25% of total ctc. So this has been achieved by adding a multiplying factor in feature 40ECS, as shown below:

Screenshot from 2014-03-13 16:11:22.png

And then in valuation table, the same is maintained as:

Screenshot from 2014-03-13 16:12:12.png

So, for this purpose in table V_T511 (WT Characteristics), the values for basic pay wage type will be as follows:

Screenshot from 2014-03-13 16:13:29.png

Which module variant to be used will depend on the calculation rule:

> In INVAL A the value of a wage type is fixed for an allowance grouping.
> In INVAL B, the value of a wage type is determined as  a % of other wage type. You can also have a fixed component which can be different for different allowance grouping.
> In INVAL C also the value of a wage type is determined as a % of other wage types, which can be restricted to a maximum value which can be different for different allowance grouping.
> In INVAL D, the value of a wage type can depend on basic salary. It has three variants which corresponds to INVAL A, B and C.

For maintaining Special Allowance, SUMME is used. The calculation for Special Allowance was sum of all wage types minus monthly ctc.

So for obtaining this purpose, in Special Allowance wage type, characterstics were maintained as below:

Screenshot from 2014-03-13 16:19:01.png

And in valuation base wage type table, the same was maintained as below:

Screenshot from 2014-03-13 16:19:58.png

This way, in PA30, in IT 0008, we only need to maintained the amount for /TPA (Monthly CTC), as according to Employee Subgroup and Payscale Group and according to allowance grouping, all other wage type amounts will populate automatically.

Thanks and Regards,

Default wage types in 0008 info type

The purpose of this blog is to provide simple step by step process for defaulting wage types in 0008 infotype. Reading the discussions in the SCN forum, I notice just how many other consultants are experiencing problems when configuring them.

Step 1 : Maintain Planned payment specification LGMST feature.

The Planned remuneration specification feature (LGMST) determines default wage types in conjunction with control features: company code, personnel area, personnel subarea, employee
group, employee subgroup and the subtype of the record.
The return code matrix has the following structure: XX/YYYYYYYY, which
has the following meaning:
XX           maximum number of wage types per record
YYYYYYYY     forms the name for the wage type model and is read from table T539A

Once the entry is maintained , activate the feature.

Step 2 : Set up default wage types for the Basic Pay infotype (0008)

Go to path SPRO--> Personnel Management --> Personnel Administration --> Payroll Data --> Basic Pay --> Wage Types --> Revise Default Wage Types.
This configuration is country specific. When a new infotype record is created, the value defined using the feature is offered as a default value. Which values you receive depends on the organizational assignment of the employee.
The defaulted wage type model can be deleted if it is marked with mode 0 (optional) in the view Default wage types for basic pay (V_T539A). When wage types are marked with mode F (fixed) this is not possible.

While I am pretty sure that most of you are aware of these things I still wanted to publish these things for the benefit of other HCM consultants who are not aware.
