Starting Y.E.A. with Monthly Payroll


Starting the payroll run calls up a country-specific payroll driver which then performs a complete payroll accounting run for the selected employees in accordance with settings in a country-specific schema. The payroll must be released before it can be started. Personnel numbers are only selected for payroll accounting if they belong to a released payroll accounting area.


  1. Select Year-end adj. ® Start payroll.
  2. Specify the payroll accounting area, period and year in the fields Payroll period (payroll area/PP/YYYY).
  3. At this point, the system provides default values taken from the payroll control record. The payroll accounting area is only used to determine the period, not to select personnel numbers. If you decide to overwrite the default values, please bear in mind that payroll accounting is only possible for released payroll accounting areas.

  4. Specify an individual personnel number or range of personnel numbers in the field Personnel number.
  5. Specify an individual payroll area or range of payroll areas in the field Payroll accounting area.
  6. In the field Forced retroactive accounting as of, enter a date for the retroactive accounting run which you would like to trigger and which is not recognized by the system.
  7. The System fills the fields Schema according to PE01, Parameters for payroll form and Program options with default values which are determined by settings made in the customizing system. You are not normally required to make entries in these fields.

  8. Select Program ® Execute or alternatively Program ® Execute + print. A log is displayed when the payroll run is complete.
  9. Scroll down to the end of the log to see whether any personnel numbers were rejected or not selected.


The payroll run is started.

If personnel numbers are rejected or not selected do not exit the payroll program. Instead, you must check the payroll results and correct master data and time data for the appropriate personnel numbers where necessary.
