How to Cost Retro Elements at Date Paid Instead of Date Earned? (Doc ID 2106027.1)

Last updated on OCTOBER 22, 2020

Applies to:

Oracle Payroll - Version 12.1 HRMS RUP7 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

After setting the Pay Action Parameter 'Cost Retro Elements on date paid rather than date earned' to Y, the cost is not getting allocated to the Organization in Date Paid.
When costing is run for a retro element, it assigns the cost to the cost centre when the element was earned and not when it was paid. This causes costs to fall into cost centres in the GL that have since been closed.
Also, when setting the value to 'N' it degrades the performance of the costing process by 25000%


STEPS
-----------------------
The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
1. Set the Pay Action Parameter 'Cost Retro Elements on date paid rather than date earned' to Y
2. Run Costing for a period that includes Retro element results.
