4.0a IMG Changes - U.S. Payroll


Several steps have been added to the U.S. Payroll IMG for this release. This release note will give a brief overview of where the changes were made, and provide links to the relevant new/changed steps.

Installation information

Installation and updates of BSI tax software is subject to change as new versions of BSI are released. SAP will continue to inform of these changes in the IMG, and by direct contact with our Net Payroll customers.

Change system parameters in customizing

The section of the Benefits Integration IMG contains 2 new nodes. These new IMG steps allow you to more accurately configure payroll processing of 401(K) amounts for highly compensated employees.

A new IMG section has been added in which Workers' Compensation data can be entered. This section will allow you to assign the relevant workers' compensation codes for any state to your organizational units and/or positions, and will also allow you to run various reports in future releases.

The 4.0a IMG also contains a new section with documentation on how to set up forms for the Earnings and Deductions Register.

The Transfer to Financial Accounting has also been changed for Release 4.0a. The transfer will now be made using HR posting documents and the FI interface, replacing batch input. Several changes have been made in the IMG for the FI Transfer as a result.

Finally, the changes to the FI/CO Transfer have also affected the Customizing for U.S. Month-End Accruals functionality. Two steps were added in which the new 4-digit symbolic accounts are defined and assigned to wage types.
