Calculate valuation basis with higher value

Personnel calculation rule XALP is used to process wage type /001 (valuation basis 1).

1. Personnel calculation rule XALP ensures that an employee is not paid less than his/her basic salary for any work carried out on the basis of a different payment.
A comparison with the employee's basic salary (master valuation basis) is used to determine whether the value of the valuation basis for the different payment (valuation basis with ALP split) is greater than or less than the value of the master valuation basis.
If the value of the master valuation basis is greater than the value calculated for the different payment, then the value of the master valuation is used as a basis for further accounting.
If the value of the master valuation basis is less than the value calculated for the different payment, then the value of the valuation basis with ALP split is used as a basis for further accounting.
2. With the help of personnel calculation rule XALP, processing is effected for a premium and the extra pay indicator, if it is specified for a different payment.

Three steps are processed for personnel calculation rule XALP:

1. In the first step, wage types /001 (valuation basis 1) are generated in table IT for the basic salary and for the records with a different payment (valuation basis with ALP split).
2. In a second step, the valuation basis with ALP split is compared with the master valuation basis, and the results are valuated.
The system determines whether a premium has also been specified for the different payment. Personnel calculation rule XALQ is accessed for this purpose and then reads table T510P (premiums). The resulting values are processed in the personnel calculation rule.
3. Finally, function ZLIT summarizes the entries in table ZL and their corresponding wage types and writes them to table IT.

Example

1. Calculate a higher valuation basis
An employee works for one day in another position which is recorded via the window Different Payment in infotype 2003 Substitutions.
The employee's normal hourly wage is $12 an hour. However, the other position is only paid at the rate of $10.50 an hour. To ensure that the employee does not lose money because of this work center substitution, personnel calculation rule XALP is used to ensure that the employee's normal salary is used as the basis of the calculation.
2. Premiums
In the standard SAP R/3 System, calculated premiums are written directly to valuation basis /001.
In personnel calculation rule XALQ, however, you can also specify rules to determine, for example, that a premium must not be greater than 10% of the master valuation basis.

Requirements

1. Wage type /001 (valuation basis 1) must be set up.
2. The premiums must be maintained. For more information on this, please refer to the sections "Group personnel areas for premiums" and "Determine premiums".
3. Before you modify personnel calculation rules, you must have a sound knowledge of how personnel calculation schemas, personnel calculation rules, functions and operations are used.

Standard settings

The personnel calculation rules mentioned above are part of standard calculation schema XT00

Recommendation

Initially, you should use the settings in the standard SAP System. If you want to make changes, you should use the existing personnel calculation rules as a model.

Activities

1. Check that personnel calculation rules XALP and XALQ meet your requirements
2. If necessary, adapt personnel calculation rules XALP and XALQ so that they meet your requirements
