Verify payroll funding ahead of year-end with these HR/GL payroll reporting tools

Each payroll cycle, funding for payroll is applied during post-processing. It creates accounting lines that are sent to the PeopleSoft Finance System (FIN) in a payroll journal. Payroll Expense Transfers (PETs), which are used to make payroll funding changes after payroll has processed, are sent to FIN in a single batch two times per day (with a few exceptions when other processes overlap).

Use HCM payroll queries to confirm payroll and PET details within HCM. These are available as soon as payroll or the PET is complete.

  • HCM Payroll Register Accounting Detail: Returns payroll earnings and funding sources.
  • HCM Paycheck Distribution: Returns payroll earnings and employer-paid taxes and deductions and funding sources.
  • Find PETs from the CU PET and Funding menu in the HRGL General Search feature.

Use mFIN reports to verify the HCM payroll data in CU-Data the day after payroll and PETs complete. Here are several CU Data mFIN reports to help you.

  • m-Fin Compensation Summary: Returns the total compensation by employee for each position by month detailed by SpeedType, salary, benefits and PETs.
  • m-Fin Payroll Transactions: Returns pay and benefits for an employee over a range of accounting periods. The final page displays the Compensation Summary.
  • m-Fin Outstanding Encumbrances: Returns an itemized list of committed but not yet incurred payroll by SpeedType.
  • m-Fin Financial Detail: Returns an itemized list of all transactions for a SpeedType which can be filtered for payroll account codes.
  • m-Fin SpeedType Summary: Confirms the details of active SpeedTypes.
  • m-FIN Operating Summary: Provides detail for projects including budget periods.
  • m-Fin Account Tree List: Returns the hierarchy of account codes including those for payroll.
  • m-Fin PET: Returns the details of a Payroll Expense Transfer (PET). You can search PETs by fiscal year, PET Operator, and PET Date.
  • Journal Entries: PETs created before December 2015 are found using their own individual PET journal ID.
