Different categories of WageTypes in SAP

Payment data (allowances or deductions) is stored using wagetypes.

There are 2  prime categories of wage types in SAP

  • Primary/Master Wage types
  • Secondary/Technical Wage types
Primary Wage types are again divided into

  1. Dialog Wage types
  2. Time Wage types
Dialog Wage types :- These are wage types that you can enter online while maintaining Master Data in your SAP system. For Ex. Basic Pay (IT0008) , Additional Payments (IT0015) , Recurring Payments/Deductions (IT0014).
Time Wagetypes:- Time wage types are created by the system once time evaluation is completed. They can not be maintained online and are system generated.

Ex: Paid Leave 75%
Secondary Wagetypes

Secondary wagetypes are system generated and can not be maintained online. They are created during payroll run. Secondary wagetypes are also used as a container to accumulate several other wagetypes or to store wagetype information on a temporary basis. The technical names of the secondary wage types begin with "/"

Ex: /559 Bank Transfer
