Maintaining Data for Monthly Payments


Additional payments of the Monthly Payroll constitute additional wage elements which are not usually accounted for in every payroll period. Unlike the Infotype 0014 Recurring payments and deductions, however, they do not occur at a particular frequency. Instead, they are accounted for just once on a fixed date which you determine when creating the additional payment itself.
