Is there a way to automate the payment of customer balances (staff debtors) by means of generating a deduction in HR payroll?
SAP Payroll offers functionality to recover monies from an employee's paycheck using the Recurring Payments/Deductions and/or the Additional Payments/Deductions infotypes (0014 and 0015 respectively). There are several ways to set up deduction wage types depending on the characteristics of the deduction. SAP provides model deduction wage types that should be copied when creating these deduction wage types. The model wage types you choose to copy will depend on the type of deduction you wish to set up (i.e. Deductions with balances and totals such as loan repayments, or simple deductions such as one time cash advances).
