In the Basic Pay infotype (0008), you can calculate an annual salary from the period salary and vice versa. The number of periods used in these calculations used to be defined by SAP.
In release 4.0A, the number of annual periods is now user-definable. This allows you, for example, to take into account a 13th month's salary.
Please note: If the system already contains Basic Pay records (0008), do not change the system settings as this would change the annual salary in these records.
In customizing, go to Personnel Administration and select the feature PFREQ in the " Determine annual salary" activity.
The feature PFREQ is also used in annual salary calculations for benefits and compensation administration.
