We are having contract with a CS and their people our working at our premises These people are having appointment letter issued by the CS and their salary is below 15000. our CS claims that up to 10 employees he is not required to pay PF /ESIC . is that correct ?
From CS point of view he did not require to take PF/ESI Code being having less than 10 employees.
But from your companies prospective they are working in your establishment, and are contractual employees, you need to submit ESI/PF in your own code.
though otherwise, already pointed out CA/CS are indepedent professionals and they are providing you professional services on retaining bases, from your organization point of view only service tax is payable not PF/ESI.
