What is

PF Registration?

PF Registration is mandatory for all the establishments that has engaged 20 or more than 20 employees. Employees drawing less than Rs.15000 per month need to mandatorily become members of the EPF. According to the guidelines, employees whose basic pay is more than Rs. 15000 a month at the time of joining can voluntarily become member of Provident Fund.

EPFO assigns a 12-digit Universal Account Number (UAN) to each employee, which remains constant throughout their employment journey, similar to the Permanent Account Number (PAN). When an employee switches jobs, EPFO issues a new member identification number (Member ID) that is linked to the existing UAN. It is crucial for employees with an existing UAN to provide it to their new employer upon joining, enabling the employer to associate a new Member ID with the pre-existing UAN.

The employer has to contribute 12% of the (Basic Salary + Dearness Allowance + Retaining Allowance). An equal amount of contribution is to be made by the employee. If the establishment has engaged less than 20 employees the EPFO rules state that the contribution rate for both the employees and the employer is limited to 10 %.

Further employer has to bear additional cost of 1.1% towards EPF administration Charges, 0.5% of the contribution towards the employee’s deposit linked insurance and 0.01% contribution towards the EDLI administration charges.
