Dear Suman ji,

What I understood is, you want to ask whether PF and ESI attract on directors' remuneration? My answer to you is as under:

As regards to PF:

Directors on salary should also be counted for computation of employees for coverage. Deduction towards PF can be made if he is not opted for excluded employee with in the meaning under the Act.

Directors getting remuneration shall be excluded.

Partners shall be excluded.

Self employed (proprietor) if getting salary, is to be counted for computation of employees for coverage. Deduction towards PF can be made if he is not opted for excluded employee with in the meaning under the Act.

As regards to ESI:

In case MD or any director is paid monthly remuneration to carry out extra duties, he is treated as employee. He is counted for the number of persons for coverage. (SC in ESI v Apex Engineering 1997(77)FLR 878 and also Hq letter T-11/13/232/20/75-Ins IV dated 04.03.1998)

Partner is a owner of the business. Partner, if he is paid some remuneration for any special attention for which he devoted, their is no change in his status i.e.ownership and bring him within the definition of employee. (SC in ESI Trichura v Ramanuja Match Industry 1985(i) LLJ 69, 1985(66),FLR 108, AIR 1985 SC 278).

Partner looking after business for remuneration of certain percentage from net profit can not be treated as employee. (Mad HC in ESI v Ananda Silks Paradise 2008(119) 577, 2008 LLR 1243, 2008(4) LLN580, 2008(i) LLJ 275).

Partner of firm not employee (Ker HC in ESI v Arun Granites 2008(i) LLJ 211)

Self employed (proprietor) is excluded and not to be counted for number of person employed. ( ESI Hydrabad v Maharaja Bar & Rest. 56, FJR 279).

I request other members to make their comments.

A Director of the Company is also an employee. In case the remuneration paid is withing the wage ceiling limit prescribed by the ESI Act, Contributions are definitely payable in respect of him. Now that you know the rule position, you have to make the remittance of the contributions on or before the 21st day of the ensuing month as in the case of the other employees. I as a Social Security Officer of the Corporation had pointed out such omissions in cases where the Director\'s Remuneration was within the Wage Ceiling Limit prescribed. You better register your such director immediately and make the remittances of contributions so that he can also avail all the benefits available under the Act.

The criterion/provisions under EPF Act applies for both public & pvt. firms.
Registration under EPF Act is necessary for any unit having on roll 10 employees or 20 employees (without use of electric power) on any day during the year. Once registration is complete, you have to check who are covered as per salary/wage ceiling i.e.Rs.15000/-p.m., For those drawing above Rs.15000/p.m. this is optional. If the directors are drawing salary, if they are also working & treated as employees, they will also be covered under EPF subject to the ceiling. Your client co., will naturally insist for PF deduction details.
