Performing SAP HCM Payroll is a multi-step process which can span the duration of a regular eight hour working day. There are many steps involved in the standard payroll process, not including any custom reports that can be used for data validation or uploads. With the many steps involved in payroll, it is easy to fall into the trap of using inefficient methods to finish payroll. Understandably, the priority is to get your employees paid on time, but certain methods can prove to be inefficient over time.
When one of my clients acquired another company in the middle of a fiscal year, it presented me a new challenge in not only helping them manage a new 401(K) cumulation and reporting process but also maintaining their current method.

Schemas are an essential component of time and payroll processing. The payroll and time schema itself contains multiple subschemas filled with logic such as operations and functions that essentially govern how your payroll and time processes are handled within your business. Although it may not be apparent, a business’s weekly paycheck to an hourly associate is directly a result of running the respective payroll and time schemas.
