EPF Return Filing
An Employee Provident Fund is an initiative designed to offer social security benefits to employees of a particular organisation, building stronger employee-employer bonds. In order to enjoy these benefits to the hilt, employers need to follow a set of rules and guidelines laid out, with registration forming the first step.
Registration is mandatory for companies/organisations which employ more than 20 individuals, including contractual and permanent employees. Smaller organisations which do not have the minimum strength can voluntarily register themselves. Companies which grow to a strength of 20 members are expected to register themselves within one month from the time of attaining this strength, with penalties applicable for delays in registration.
