  2. Enter the Employees view.
  3. Search for the Employee and click on Edit.
  4. Navigate to Employee Times.
  5. Select the required entry.
  6. Under Details: Account Postings show Bookable From and Bookable To in the future year.


The cause for the issue is that the Posting Type is not defined for the Time Accounts in the fine tuning activity for Time Types.

  1. Go to Business Configuration work center.
  2. Enter the Overview view.
  3. Search for Time Types - X and open it (Where X represents the country).
  4. Open Maintain Employee Time Types.

  8. Following this setup, execute the Administrative Day Closure run for all employees.

Time will be posted to respective Time Accounts based on Bookable From and To.
