UK PAY : EAS Scotland Element balance not clearing 'Remaining Debt' incorrect on the SOE (statement of earnings) (Doc ID 1384329.1)

Last updated on AUGUST 02, 2023

Applies to:

Oracle HRMS (UK) - Version and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


After following the steps provided to clear the EAS Court order balance (in order to place a new order), after the payroll run the 'Remaining debt' showing on the Statement of Earnings for the EAS element is incorrect. The balance is not being cleared as expected.

Steps followed to clear balance :

NOTE :   Incorrect Scottish Aestments When a Previous Earnings Aestments Has Been End Dated <Document 753147.1>

EAS Scotland Payments_ASG_ITD need to be manually adjusted to 0 When an EAS Scotland entry is stopped

The solution from the Note is as follows :


To implement the solution, please execute the following steps::

1. Rollback the payroll for this employee

2. Manually adjust EAS Scotland Payments_ASG_ITD to 0 (as follows)

In a period following the repayment of the prior EAS Scotland element but BEFORE the new EAS Scotland element is to be taken you will need to enter a balance adjustment.

1 - Date Track to the relevant period
2 - Navigate : Person > Assignment > Others > Adjust Balance > Pick the element 'EAS Scotland'
3 - Enter values for Type, Initial debt (as were in the original / prior EAS Scotland element).
4 - Enter pay_value > This should be a negative value to reset the balances.

    • eg. Initial debt = 100
    • pay_value = -100

5 - Save
6 - Enter the new court order in a subsequent period
7 - Processing the new EAS Scotland element should now be correct without any reference to the original or prior one.

3. Rerun the payroll again

This should have cleared the existing balances so remaining debt should be the amount of the NEW EAS that was not paid in the first run, however, it was still showing as being FAR too high despite performing the above steps.
