Hi Navneet and Sitla, here are some answers to questions raised in the case header and the proposed changes. Please review and send a meeting request to discuss this so I can proceed with development.

  1. The "Employee Transfer" utility allows you to transfer the Employee Profile from one company to another. Refer to the documentation for details.
  2. With reference to Figure 1 issues raised
    1. Item 3 - Leave adjustment is not applied as "companies" are separate entities. We cannot make adjustments in "Company 2" from "Company 1" as the authorities could be different and could be governed by a separate set of rules.
    2. Item 5 - Yes we can transfer Employee History Records for Tax history purposes
    3. Item 6 - Yes we can transfer Pay Setup details
    4. Item 7 - Yes we can transfer leave allocation although the dates could be an issue. I will investigate this further
    5. Item 8 - Yes you need to complete all employee-related transactions in the "Source Company". Same as the reason given in 2.1 above.
    6. Item 9 - Yes All leave must be paid out of the "Source Company" as the "destination Company" cannot be liable for the financials of another company. 

Please review and update this case with concerns so I can proceed with items 2.2 to 2.4 above.

Bula Team,

As per discussion with Sanjay and Sitla, below are the discussion points:

Figure1:

 

Effects Of Transfer

Expected Result

Confirmed Transfer

 

Company 1001

 

 

1

Employee Profile gets inactive

Agreed

 

2

Employee does not reflect under Leave Allocation & Leave Balance

Agreed

 

3

Leave Adjustment Entry does not reflect in history or any report upon transfer out (what happens to the existing balance)

Should reflect as adjustment out if not paid

 

 

Company 1003

 

 

4

Employee Maintenance details get transferred - Pay Rates, Position History,Service history,Grade History, Additional Tax

Agreed - details got transferred

 

5

Employee Maintenace details does not get transferred - Previous Employment (YTD)

Should transfer for correct PAYE deductions

 

6

Employee Pay Setup details does not get transferred - Direct Credit, Superannuation, Allowance , Benefits, Deductions

Should transfer

Only Direct Credit and Superannuation is fixed, so this should get transferred

7

Leave Allocation - All Leaves type balance from previous Company does not get transferred

Should transfer

Don’t transfer leave allocation as we don’t not want partial transfer because the Leave code setup in Company A can differ from leave code setup in Company B

 

Clarification: How does transfer work?

 

 

8

Does employees final pay needs to be processed from Company 1001?

If so, it defeats the purpose of Intercompany transfer

Yes, final pay needs to be processed and bring their balances to zero and than move employee to company 2.

9

Should all leave be paid out before transfer from Company 1001?

If so, it defeats the purpose of Intercompany transfer. Example , under same group transfer leave balance should transfer as company wont allocate new balances

Yes, leaves need to be paid out before before the employee moves to Company B. If Company A does not want to pay out leaves, they can  do a manual adjustment to zeroize all the leave balances

 

Next Step:

  1. Sanjay to review and move case to Project 14.80

Navneet
