How to Use Standard Configuration to Assign Fiscal Year Periods to Quota Banks

Does your organization require quota entitlement banks for an accrual period that is not a part of the standard SAP system settings? You don’t have to create custom ABAP enhancements or write custom personnel calculation rules. With a few simple configuration steps, you can create quota entitlement banks for time evaluation by establishing a fiscal year parameter that meets your organization’s needs.
Key Concept
Entitlement banks, also called leave entitlements, are the balances of time off an employee may take during a specified period. The time off may be paid or unpaid and falls into various categories such as vacation, sick leave, or personal time. Organizations may grant employees entitlement banks in whole or the employees may accrue a certain number of hours during a specific period of time, such as daily, weekly, or by pay period.

For most SAP ERP HCM implementations, you can use SAP standard base and accrual periods such as calendar year, payroll period, daily, and monthly, to establish entitlement banks for tracking employee leave balances. These standard time measures define how and when entitlement banks are generated and deductible. However, your organization may require the generation of a quota entitlement bank to be based on its fiscal calendar.
