Superannuation Calculation for Employee Contribution

Hi Experts,


I have a requirement to have different logic in Payroll Calculations for Superannuation salary sacrifice % maintained in PA0220-EMPCN.

Basically in the standard payroll calculations, the Superannuation calculations return the Superable salary Wagetype as the base for both Employer (SGC) and Employee contributions (Salary sacrifice). For the Employer Contribution (SGC), the Wage Type is fetched only for Base salary and no overtime or allowances taken into consideration.


Our business requirement is to take the Gross Salary (includes all earnings) as a base to work out the Employee contribution (Salary sacrifice). Could anyone please outline how to achieve these two different logics in Payroll calculations using SUPER Function?

Hi Karthik,

From the above screenshot, what I see is that you have maintained /GPT in the OTE wage type, which is incorrect. /GPT is a standard SAP wage type.

You have to maintain the superable earnings wage type in the OTE wage type field.

The concept of inflow and out flow wage type is as follows:

SAP from the financial year 2012 made changes to superannuation contribution calculations according to ATO.

The changes are on how the contribution are calculated in retro scenarios.

Earlier the contributions used to calculate in the for period when there is a retroactive change in superable earnings.

But from 2012 financial year the difference in superable earnings is brought forward to the current period through inflow out flow wage types and calculate the contribution in the in period.


If your OTE wage type is a standard wage type like /172, you need not maintain the in flow and out flow wage types. The QSUEA function in the Factoring schema should take care of generating the inflow and out flow wage types

If it is a custom wage type like /195 you need to maintain the inflow and out flow wage types.

The outflow and inflow wage types for /195 should be /A95 and /Z95. so if it is /196 they should be /A96 and /Z96......

Please let me know should you require further information.

Kindly mark the reply as helpful or answered if you are happy with the resolution.

Thank you
