Learn how SAP Payroll Change Management can simplify and reduce errors in your payroll runs.
Key Concept
SAP introduced a new product, Payroll Change Management, in March 2006. This tool works with R/3 4.6C and up. It takes a historical snapshot of your payroll configuration so you can track the changes you made in detail. Based on the historical information, payroll technical staff can pinpoint and correct an error.

Let’s say that you just completed your payroll configuration changes to adjust vacation accrual policy, but you cannot get the results quite right and you forgot the exact changes you made. How can you get payroll to run correctly?

SAP Payroll Change Management helps you analyze the impact of your changes by pointing out the schemas, rules, and wage types that reference the configuration settings you changed. A summary screen highlights inconsistencies and provides an enhanced payroll run analysis that focuses on the payroll steps that changed the vacation accrual wage types. This enables you to examine how relevant rules process the wage types.
