Q. Priority for deductions for deduction wage types
A. Priorities can be set for each deduction wage type. This is done using table V_T51P6.
- The priority field assigns a priority to any deduction wage type used in arrears processing.
- In the arrears functions, deductions are sorted according to the priority assigned to them and processed in this order. The highest priority deductions are subtracted from the net amount first, then the next highest and so on in descending order until the net amount has been used up. Within one level of priority, the deductions are sorted according to wage type name.
