Rewrite as SP is the easiest way, but maybe not the most efficient. It's quite simple code, you can probably rewrite it as a single SQL statement.

This is more or less a 1:1 translation to Teradata syntax (untested):

     create procedure foo()


     last_date DATE;
     mean float;
     RESULT float;
     rec float;

     /********* determining the latest weekday in the table********/

     select max(a.Bus_date) into :last_date from payments a;

     /********* counting records on the latest weekday *********/

     select count(*) into :rec from payments a where a.BUS_DATE = last_date;

     /********* counting sum of all records for the same weekday in last 8 months ***/

     select avg(cnt) into :mean from
        select count(*))
        from payments a
        where a.BUS_DATE > (last_date - 240) and a.BUS_DATE < last_date
        and ((last_date - a.BUS_DATE) mod 7) = 0
        group by a.BUS_DATE

     /***** calculating mean and variance *********/

     RESULT := cast(((rec - mean)*100/mean) as dec(18,2));

     /********** inserting in metrics table *******/
     upper('TESTED ' || last_date || ' - ' || (last_date (format 'eeee'))));
