Employee grouping and symbolic accounts

Human Resources wage types are not assigned directly to accounts in Accounting(FI). In the first instance, they are assigned to symbolic accounts. Account determination for Posting to Accounting is a two-step procecure. For this reason, changes to the chart of accounts do not affect wage type coding:

1. In the Payroll component, a symbolic account is assigned to a wage type. Symbolic accounts group wage types that are to be treated similarly for the purposes of posting.
2. The symbolic account is assigned to an account in Accounting (G/L account, customer account, vendor account).

The employee grouping for account determination is used in assigning symbolic accounts to accounts in Accounting. This makes it possible, for example, for specific expenses in Payroll to be posted to a single symbolic account, but distributed to various accounts in Accounting. This process is determined in line with the employee's characteristics as defined in the Workplace Basic Pay (WPBP) table.
