2928397 - Time Account Accrual Varies In Quantity


You have configured a time account for periodic accrual (for example, adding 2 days to the account's balance on the first Tuesday of the month), but you have noticed that the quantity of the accrual changes in some of the periods or there are even cases where no accrual is done.

Image/data in this KBA is from SAP internal systems, sample data, or demo systems. Any resemblance to real data is purely coincidental.

The option Stop Accrual at Upper Balance Limit might be enabled for this time account.

This allows you to determine an accrual limit that can't be surpassed. Following the example above (2 days on the first Tuesday of the month), if the account's balance is already at 29 days and it has an upper balance limit of 30 days: the accrual will only add one day to the account's balance in the next month and if the balance is not consumed — for example, by the employee using it for a leave — there will be no accrual in the following months until the balance lowers from the limit.


If this is not wanted, please consider disabling this option from the time account by following the below instructions:

  1. Go to the Business Configuration work center.
  2. Access the Overview work center view.
  3. Search for "time accounts".
  4. Access the activity specific to the relevant country/region.
  5. Click the link to Maintain Time Account Rules.
  6. In the next screen, locate and select the time account in question.
  7. Navigate to the Accrual Rule tab.
  8. Uncheck the Stop Accrual at Upper Balance Limit box.


Please note: upon changing any setting fine-tuning activities related to time administration, Time Valuation may need to be retriggered to ensure the employees' time profiles are updated with the new changes. To understand how to execute this, please check the help document Time Valuation.
