Dear All,

With reference to the above circular dated 02nd March, 2015, the EPFO has come up with a circular for changing the Admin Charge(A/c No 2) for an establishment from the existing 1.10% to 0.85% of Basic Wages + DA + Cash Value of Food Concession, thereby resulting in reduction by 25 basis points. The amendment is made effective from 01 Jan, 2015. As a result of the amendment, the Employer Share of PF has changed from 13.61% to 13.36%.
However, the department has set a limit for minimum charges for A/c No. 2 (Admin Charges on PF) and A/c No 22 (Admin Charges on EDLI) – as given below

Date of Effect : 01 January, 2015

Category of Establishment: At-least 1 PF member (Employee)

Before Amendment
A/c No 2 : Admin Charges on PF : 1.10% of Basic Wages + DA + Cash Value of Food Concession
A/c No 22 : Admin Charges on EDLI : 0.01% of Basic Wages + DA + Cash Value of Food Concession

After Amendment
A/c No 2 :0.84% subject to minimum
A/c No 22:0.01% subject to minimum

Category of Establishment : Non-functional establishment having no PF member (Employee)

Before Amendment
A/c No 2 : Admin Charges on PF : Rs. 5
A/c No 22 : Admin Charges on EDLI Rs. 2

After Amendment
A/c No 2 :Rs. 75
A/c No. 22 :Rs. 25

To conclude, if the amount payable for a month falls below (for A/c No 2) or (for A/c No 22), then and will be payable in A/c No. 2 and 22, respectively. Effectively, PF liability will increase for employers with low Aggregate Wages and will decrease for employers with higher Aggregate Wages.

Note: Nothing contained in above notification shall affect the administrative charges payable in respect of the period upto and inclusive of 31st Dec 2014

Thanks for the information. Further, we have already remitted challan for Jan-2015 in which we have paid Rs.13/- excess in A/c No.2 and Rs.195/- short in A/c No.22 by unknowingly the new amendments.
Now, can we adjust the same i.e., adding/reducing in our regular Feb-2015 challan only OR shall we prepare a separate challan for the excess / short payments made.
Kindly clarify at the earliest.

Dear Darshan,
We need to calculate PF from 2015 on basic + DA or gross salary. Our company not comes under the PF contribution. We are doing it as voluntary contribution both (employeer + employee) in employeer side. We verify in the PF office and one PF consultant both informed as from total salary we need to deducted 30% as HRA and remaining from 70% we need to deducted 12%.
For Eg.
Gross salary is 10000,
HRA (10000*30%) - 3000,
remaining (70%) - 7000*12% - 840 or basic salary - 2000*12%.
Can you please help us.
Thanks in advance for all your great support.
