cost centre and controlling area

Hi to all,

Its very urgent to my project,

Can any one help me out for this,

I want to maintain an employee record without cost centre and controlling area? It is possible to do so? Whether payroll can be run? If is possible where the expenses will go and settle after running a payroll or after posting?

Latter on say after 6 payroll run (ie. after 6 month), the company is decided to add a cost centre and controlling area? Is it possible to add the cost centre and controlling area? And what will be the impact on this by doing this so.

Waiting for your immediate and urgent response,

Thanks in advance for your reply,

With Regards,



Hi Babu

You don't need the cost centers (payroll runs fine). I am not sure about the controlling area.

I didn't understand your part about the expenses. Could you try to explain it again to me?

Retro calculation should theoretically made it possible to assign cost centres afterwards. Suggest, you try it, but I think chances are quite good.
