SAP HCM Payroll Process

Payroll periods must be generated for each combination of period parameters and date modifiers assigned to a payroll area. Date modifier links the additional date types with a payroll calendar.

3) Control record must be created for every payroll area. This control record controls the individual stages of payroll. A control record must be created in Customizing for each payroll area before it can be used.To Maintain Personnel Control Record use transaction PA03.

4) Payroll Process: When payroll is run master data and time data changes are not permitted. Also payroll must not be run during master data maintenance. This can be controlled by payroll control record.

5) If Exit Payroll is selected, it releases infotypes and locks payroll area for payroll run. Payroll can be exited only if all personnel numbers have been processed successfully.


An SAP Payroll consultant should have SAP project and application support experience coupled with sound knowledge of positive Time management, the configuration of TM00 schema, absence/leave types and quota configuration, generation of leave quotas, various phases of ASAP methodology and documents involved in each phase.
