The SAP US Payroll module component allows you to process payroll for employees in the United States, using data from SAP Personnel Administration and Benefits under a wide variety of configurations. You can also run payroll using a combination of SAP and third party products. The SAP Payroll system also offers a number of standard payroll reports. The Tax Reporter component allows you to generate all required state and federal tax forms, such as SUI reports and W-2s. Further reports can be generated using Ad Hoc Query in conjunction with an SAP Payroll Infotype.

United States Payroll should be implemented in cooperation with the project team implementing other areas of SAP HR, particularly Personnel Administration. Since US Payroll uses an interface to a separate BSI TaxFactory database to calculate taxes, you need to consult with networking, database and Basis personnel during some parts of the implementation.

The Payroll component is integrated with other SAP HR components, such as Personnel Administration and Benefits. There are also interfaces to other SAP modules such as Financial Accounting and Controlling.


SAP Payroll allows American businesses to run payroll for employees in all states. Requisite statutory reports, such as Federal forms 940, W-2, W-3, and all state SUI forms are also supported by the SAP system.

SAP U.S. Payroll Tax Calculation by BSI is a required addition to any U.S. Payroll license or subscription. The U.S. has complex regulations and compliance requirements with respect to payroll taxes and these undergo frequent changes. With an integrated SAP payroll/ BSI solution, SAP eliminates for its customers the burden of tracking regulatory rules and ensures compliance with tax regulations. 


Important features of SAP HCM US Payroll are as follows:

• Time data from Time Management is included in Payroll and is used during the payroll run.

• Data retention allows you to use master data and other payroll related data from Personnel Administration.

• Payroll can be integrated with Personnel administration, time management, wages and accounting.

• Incentive Wages component is used to process payroll directly.

Expenses and payable information from SAP Payroll component is posted directly in Financial Accounting FICO to assign a cost center for all the costs.

SAP Payroll system also calculates the gross pay and the net pay. It consists of payments for each employee and deductions made during a payroll period. All payments and deductions are included in the remuneration calculation using different wage types.


This SAP US Payroll training by Uplatz provides in-depth coverage of US Payroll system, its configuration and management, and processing of payroll records.
