You can simplify bonus payments to a terminated US employee by setting up a Business Add-In to do the job. This approach is flexible enough to meet your own business requirements.
Key Concept

A Business Add-In (BAdI) works in a similar manner as a user exit and is available in R/3 4.6B and up. BAdIs process user changes both in transaction PA30 and in batch programs. For more general information about BAdIs, refer to the following Web site: saphelp_470/helpdata/en/5f/071eed117c11d5b37d0050dadef62b/frameset.htm.

When you enter additional earnings on an infotype 0015 (additional payments) record for a separated employee, the next payroll run may not pick up these earnings automatically. To ensure that payroll processes them, set the Run payroll up to field on the infotype 0003 (payroll status) record to a date within a payroll period that has yet to run. Payroll discovers these records when running the payroll period for that date. However, it’s difficult to remember to do this every time. Put your mind at ease and set up a Business Add-In (BAdI) to do this for you automatically. You can easily adapt this technique to other business scenarios.
