PF Registration

When does a firm need to go for PF Registration?

  • A business entity with 20 or more employees needs to get PF registration done. However, the employees with the Basic + DA in their salary over Rs 15,000 per month, have the option of opting out of the PF contribution by the company.
  • A company with more than 6 employees (but less than 20) has the option of registering for PF if they want. However, for this, a consent letter for this is needed from each of the employees.
