P60 Decimal Places

As we are processing year end now, there is this issue with SAP Standard p60 and NI forms where the values are shown without decimal places. For example 200.40 displays as 200.

We checked the SAP script - it truncates last 3 places from these values.

Has anyone come across such issues? Could it be an issue with standard SAP script? or something is wrong with the config.

If you're talking about the NI fields, if I remember rightly, these are whole pounds only, hence just the pound sign above each field and not the pounds and pence signs which you get on some other fields. I'm pretty sure it used to say this on the pre-printed stationery but it now only seems to be mentioned in the instructions if you still use paper P11 forms. Check the HMRC website ... ndguidance.

Many thanks .. I believe you are absolutely correct! Great news.

The only slight quirk is that SAP show the decimal point so instead of seeing "5678" you see "5678." which is a bit strange but I don't think the world will end.

Will tell the user it helps identify the end of the number! :)

SAP issues an OSS note 1491259 which removes the decimal place being printed.
Problem solved :)
