  • Thanks for this overview, Luke!

    2 questions:

    1) is it supporting full gross2net for the US and Canada?

    2) any idea about Germany? I know it's a nightmare, but with Austria in, they should be half way there already.



    • Hi Sven,

      I'm just the messenger here so I'm not inviting Payroll questions 😉

      Since Employee Central Payroll is SAP Payroll hosted in the Cloud then if SAP Payroll supports Gross-to-Net then Employee Central Payroll should.

      With regards to Germany, this will be added when there is a request by a customer to support it. Since Germany is not a strong market for Employee Central (which is a prerequisite for Employee Central Payroll) then I don't think this will be soon. But keep your eyes peeled on this document!

      Best regards,


    • Hi Wim,

      SAP will consider new countries upon request. I believe there is a roadmap, but details are not usually published.

      Best regards,


  • Hi Luke,

    Like all of yours articles, this one is crisp and informative. Saw your tweets about Successfactors adding two more countries in 1402. Any idea around how functionality around time management is covered or integrated with payroll, given that Succesfactors does not have strong TM? Or going down the Kronos path is the only option? Heard about Successfactors introducing Timsheet features but I guess we may have to wait a while before we see scheduling, complex adbsence management etc. Whats your take?



    • Hi Samir,

      Thanks for your comments - they are much appreciated. I will be updating this list with those new countries once they are formally released. Regarding time management, SuccessFactors partners with Kronos and WorkForce Software for this functionality and their systems can integrate directly with a variety of payroll systems. Other systems can be used, but there isn't standard integration content available for all vendors. You are correct that SuccessFactors is introducing some timesheet functionality, but it will be lightweight and not to the same level of detail that CATS or some 3rd party applications have. No doubt this will be built on the MDF so it can integrate easily with other systems.

      Best regards,


    • Yes it is up-to-date as of today and remains updated as new countries are released (note that countries are not added until the date that they are released into a Development system). I am yet to find a publicly available list, hence why this one exists. I will let SuccessFactors know that their website is incorrect.

    • Hi Anders,

      Denmark is a 'special case'. The payroll localization for payroll is provided by KMD. There are currently discussions going on on extending the delivery of the localization for on-premise SAP HCM Payroll to Employee Central Payroll. Feel free to reach out to Jan Hesthaven ( on this topic.
