Hello Payroll Experts!!
I am calling it Challenge because whoever I spoke to hasnu2019t given me a clear answer, and most of the time it has been u201Cnot possibleu201D.
1. There is a Wage Type (which is defined as neither Payment nor Deduction). Lets call it W1
2. W1 has following settings related to classes:
a. Processing Class 1: Assignment to valuation bases = 0 (Wage type is not included in a valuation basis)
b. Processing Class 20: Cumulation and storage at end of gross part = 1 (Transfer unchanged)
c. Cumulation Class 1: Total gross amount = Unchecked
d. Cumulation Class 10: Net payments/deductions = Unchecked
e. Reset all classes have either default or Zero value.
We are defining a Wage W1 which neither adds nor deducts the salary of an employee. However, I want W1 to be processed in Payroll and finally when I do the posting it should be able to post to respective G/L account.
Reason for activity:
Client wants to record the amount of W1 in HR, so that later a report can be generated. However, W1 is not a payment or deduction. It is a Cost (Training Cost, Visa Cost etc), which has to be linked to an employee.
I agree there is a work around to this issue; however, I am more interested in knowing if the above logic is right and will I be able to get the desired result of posting the Wage Type value to G/L Account, without making payment or deduction to employee payroll?
I hope you enjoy this case study as much as I am enjoying to research on it.
