Oracle Fusion Global Payroll - Version 11.1.11.1.0 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal

The run instructions for the FUTA Tax Balance Adjustments say:

1. From the Checklists work area, start the Run US Tax Balance Adjustment process.
  This process creates a balance adjustment batch. The batch uses the same name as the flow you used when you ran the process.
2. Download the batch to the Payroll Batch Loader (PBL).

We ran step 1, but are unable to locate the balance adjustment batch. How do we "download the batch to the Payroll Batch Loader"?
 

Fllowing the instructions in Year End Year Begin <note 2270380.1> and the Year End White Paper <note 1944400.1> :

Page 6 of the Year Begin note says:
FUTA Tax Balance Adjustments
FUTA taxes can be set to self

Adjust on the organization calculation card. However, FUTA credit reduction rates are received in the November/December timeframe and apply to the current year taxes. The system will not self - adjust if employees have already hit the wage limit of $7,000, or have been terminated.
Customers will need to run a new automated process that will perform the tax adjustment on employees when new credit reduction rates are received for the current calendar year, for any employee whose FUTA Tax needs adjusted due to a rate change.


1.
Run the new process called “Run US Tax Balance Adjustment”.
This process will create a balance adjustment batch.
The batch will be created with the same name as the flow name that was used for the “Run US Tax Balance Adjustment” process.


2.
Download the batch to the Payroll Batch Loader and verify the batch content.
There is no separate audit report. The batch can be verified via Payroll Batch Loader.

For some reason the batch is not getting created.

Customer ran step 1 with date Jan 1 2017, process ran successfully.
Log file said that 3223 records are processed successfully.
XML file got generated.

However there is no batch created for this process.
