Attention Australian (AU) Legislative Payroll Clients, a Payment Summary Patch Has Been Released.

Customers who are using Australian (AU) Payroll and who have applied AU.23 patches for Year End processing must also apply the below patch on respective code lines:

Release 12.1 – Patch 23201428:R12.PER.B - Selected Payment Summary LOV lists multiple rows.
Release 12.2 – Patch 23201428:R12.PER.C - Selected Payment Summary LOV lists multiple rows.

The Issue Fixed:

Currently “Selected Payment Summary”  list of values (LOV) is retrieving multiple assignment records when entering assignment number in "Selected Payment Summary" field and search for the records in "Self Printed Payment Summary" page.

We have modified the LOV mapping property for "Selected Payment Summary" LOV in "Self Printed Payment Summary" page to retrieve single record based on the selected year.


If you encounter any issues with either of  these patches, please raise a Service Request via My Oracle Support with Oracle Payroll Support.

HRMS UK: RTI Adress Validation

Customers should review and apply the following patches which can cause issues when submitting files to HMRC relating to validation of addresses.

23024500: RTI-FPS DOESN'T CONTAIN VALIDATIONS FOR ADDRESS LINE1 FOR EMPLOYEES . 

This issue occurs if the user has any invalid characters in address lines and the FPS process is submitted with Parameter "Include Address Details" set to "Always". In this scenario address validation is not happening as expected and the FPS EDI file is generated without reporting any error message for invalid address.

As stated in our earlier communication, after the release of Tax year patch 22669294:R12.PAY.B for release R12.1 some additional bug fixes have been released for RTI.

Please review the following MOS for further details:

  • Note ID 1324671.1  EBS UK Payroll : Real Time Information (RTI) White Paper and Patch Information

This whitepaper provides the list of issues reported for RTI along with the corresponding patch numbers that deliverthe fix.  It is updated with any fixes released for RTI and should be monitored regularly to ensure you are aware of any patches which should be applied.

We are currently working to provide the following consolidated patches to deliver all RTI changes.  These should be available around the middle of next week and will include all the RTI fixes listed against note 1324671.1.

UK Teachers Pensions

Do you operate payroll for Teachers or report data to the UK Teachers Pension?

Are you intending to start reporting your Teachers data via the Monthly Data Collection (MDC) in 2016 / 2017?

Then this is for YOU!

If you plan to start reporting your Teachers data via the Monthly Data Collection (MDC), you will need to ensure that you have applied the  TYE16: TEACHERS PENSION MONTHLY DATA COLLECTION : EVENT TRACKING functionality which delivers the event triggers to start recording updates which can be captured and produced at a later stage. 

This patch will need to be applied to your production environment by the 1st April to track all of your 2016 / 2017 changes

Please refer to MOS Note:2116089.1 : UK TPA Monthly Data Collection Report Whitepaper


Oracle HRMS Development will be running a Pilot program for the Monthly Data Collection (MDC).

  • Patch 21032735: TEACHERS PENSION MONTHLY DATA COLLECTION CHANGES

Will deliver the full functionality, including the event triggers.  Although, at this time only customers participating in the MDC Pilot should apply patch 21032735:R12.PQP.C to their test environment.

The logic behind the split of the patches is that we anticipated that customers would not be comfortable applying the full patch into production prior to completion of a full a testing programme.So once the pilot is complete, a mail will be sent out informing all customers of the patch they should apply to their systems.

If any customer wishes to review the content of the MDC patch or apply it to their system, they may download it and test the patch.

However, please load the patch in a test environment only, as we are unable to give priority to issues relating to this patch raised by anyone not participating in the official MDC pilot program.
