We are an architectural/interior designing firm based in Mumbai & executing Interior projects on turnkey basis. Our technical staff strength is 6 nos along with 2 partners.
Are we eligible for ESIC deductions,especially when we sub-contract the works to different vendor/subcontractor & do not have any labour under our payroll.
Our clients are deducting ESIC on our bil.Is this justified? Our subcontractor is eligible for PF & not ESIC as he has less than 20 employees under his payroll too.
Can we forward our subcontractors PF number to our clients to avail exemption from these deductions?
Your feedback here will be highly appreciated.
