Mike Timm on Year-End Payroll and FI/CO Integration

MikeTimmOn October 1, Mike joined Ken Murphy at SAPinsider for an HR Connections podcast. During the 13 minute podcast, Mike was able to cover a range of topics. They include:

The Tax Factory BSI 10.0 upgrade and end-of-support for 9.0

  • BSI 9.0 will no longer be supported after November 30, 2014
  • Companies are moving over to 10.0, but not without bumps
  • Upgrade early to allow yourself enough time to adjust

Accounts payable

  • It is often unutilized by companies that would truly benefit from it
  • Garnishments, deductions for benefits included
  • Allows for auditing and streamline process when put in place

Considerations for integrating SAP Payroll with FICO 

Year end’s approach

  • Clearing of claims
  • Schedule yourself out of this year and into January
  • Head over to the SAP support portal for the newsletter, reference materials/guidelines, support packages, and SAP notes

Streamlining of payroll processes by creating a process model

Custom area menu use

  • Outline step-by-step for users
  • Custom transaction code to call specific variant
