SAP HCM Tip: Tax Locator Issues

Tax Locator is an effective tool designed to help assign proper tax areas for infotype 0207 (Resident Tax Area) and infotype 0208 (Work Tax Area), which will ensure proper payroll taxation.

Setting up Tax Locator is simple, as one needs to follow the steps in the IMG.  However, once all the steps are set-up initially, problems may arise from not having Tax Locator updated with the latest data set.  To mitigate any potential issues, SAP and BSI deliver programs to test and audit Tax Locator configuration.

1)  Setting infotype 0003’s Earliest Personal Retroactive date for each personnel number

2) Setting the payroll control record’s Earliest Retroactive Accounting Period.

SAP HCM Tip: Paying Holiday Pay Only If Worked the Day Before/After a Holiday

This can be a complicated matter and often implementers will resort to custom code to resolve this requirement.

SCENARIO

Holiday pay is to be generated automatically via time evaluation for your employees on company holidays. Your company also has a holiday policy that states that employees will not get holiday pay hours in case of unexcused absence time before or after a company holiday. Read more.
