Provident Fund is to be deducted and contributed on Basic salary and Dearness Allowances only. ESI is to be taken on gross salary including Basic, DA, HRA, Conveyance and other allowances which are paid in an interval of not more than two months. That is to say, if you have the practice of paying incentives/ bonus on a monthly basis, that should also be taken as salary for ESI purpose. That means only reimbursements like travelling expenses, LTA are exempt from ESI.
For Profession Tax also total income received by an employee by whatever means like salary, bonus etc,during the half year will qualify.
I didn't get what are Live and FNF employees.
