By Arindam Bhuin, Tricon Infotech


There are accrued payments to the Employees apart from payroll as they are related to Organization activities.

These kind of accrued payments are not paid by through HCM (Payroll) as they are related to handling expenditure related to organization activities.

Examples of these kinds of payments:

  • Petty cash (temporary and permanent).

  • Settlement of vendor invoices.

  • Office operations (buffets and misc.).

We need to have the ability to automatically create employee as a supplier.

By this we can link the employee record in HCM with the financial aspect, it is very important that they have the same data and number

  • Bank Details (Infotype 0009 Subtype 0 or 2)
