Integration of FI and HR module is done by using following path;
SPRO > Payroll > Payroll: India > Reporting for posting payroll results to accounting
Step by step procedure for FI HR integration;
- Define Symbolic Account
Symbolic a/cs are four character keys that act as an integration between HR wage types and Financial Accounting general ledgers. To define such symbolic a/c for FI HR integration you can use following path;
SPRO > Payroll > Payroll: India > Reporting for posting payroll results to accounting > Activities in HR system > employee grouping and symbolic accounts
Enter the name of the symbolic account and a description to it. If you want to create a symbolic account for your basic salary then you can create it as B100: Basic Salary
After such creation you have to save it
- Maintain Wage Type
To create wage type you need to use following path;
SPRO > Payroll > Payroll: India > Reporting for posting payroll results to accounting > activities in HR system > maintain wage types > define posting characteristics of wage types
You can also use transaction code OH02.
Enter your country’s name and press enter. For creating your own wage type you can use “new entries” or “copy” icon to copy one existing wage type to create your own.
After creation of wage type just select that and click on posting-wage type
- Serial number
- +/- sign for posting (+ represents positive amount in debit and – represents positive amount in credit)
- Assign symbolic account created in the first step.
- Assign General Ledger A/cs to symbolic Accounts
To assign general ledger a/cs for FI HR integration you need to follow below path;
SPRO > Payroll > Payroll: India > Reporting for posting payroll results to accounting > Activities in AC system > Assigning Accounts
From here you assign all balance sheets and expenses a/cs to HR system.
- Assign Balance Sheet A/cs
Transaction code OBYG can be used for assignment of balance sheet a/cs to symbolic account.
Double click on “assign balance sheet accounts” and assign your chart of a/cs. Press enter.
Now against your symbolic accounts created in HR module you need to assign the General ledger a/c of FI module.
In addition to that you need to put certain employee groups. Following employee groups can be used;
3: Direct Operators
4: Indirect Operators
- Assign Expenses Accounts
Transaction code OBYE can be used for assignment of expenses a/c to symbolic account.
Enter chart of a/cs. Press enter.
Like the earlier steps you need to assign general ledger a/cs of FI module against the symbolic account type created in HR modules.
After the FI HR integration, all the postings from a HR module will be posted to FI module. FI HR integration is a very easy step but you need to plan it before implementing the same in to a live system. You need to plan the symbolic account type, the wage type and general ledger a/cs to be assigned to symbolic account before the configuration.
