Dear Seniors, Kindly suggest that any chance that we can show the employees as consultants after deducting TDS from their salary in these type of situations. Please advise. With Regards, Nandini

How many such "trainees / consultant " do you have ?
The answer will depend on that.
In any case this cannot be changed once the employee has already joined. It has to be done before they join. If you try to change it later, the department will not accept it and will consider it as a fraud. Then you will be liable for all penalties.
Hi Abhinav, I am completely new to generalist profile can you please help me with your number so i will be able to take advises from you. Hope you dont mind n support me...
Dear Saswata,
Thanks for your reply.
When any employee is joining for some 10000k salary per month at the time of joining itself if we can mention him as a consultant and if we deduct his TDS then he will need not to be covered for PF/ESI.
Please confirm.
With Regards,
In case the Apprentices are taken under the Apprentices Act or Standing orders they can be exempted.
Adding to views of Mr Saswata Banerjee given above, I am of the opinion that 'Consultants' will not be bound to the service rules of the company because they will not be employee under any law? By designation, they are supposed to provide consultancy only and will submit bills for payment. Hence, I suspect that any department will accept the plea that consultants are working 8 to 10 hours in the establishment.
Hi All,
Hope you all are doing good. thank you so much for all your valuable suggestions. i think keeping them as consultant wont be a good idea as it will just increase the paper work and burden on accounts & finance department.
i think we need to have more brain storming on this and think of something out of the box. i am also trying my best to find a way out and will surely post out here.
Warm Regards
Abhinav :-)
Hello Abhinav,
Maybe you can consider to hire them on Fixed Tenure Contract & keep renewing them after the current Contract expires OR whenever you wish to hike his/her salary so that the PF wouldn't be an issue.....whichever is earlier.
@ Saswata Banerjee--
Do you think this can work-out from the F&A angle?
Consider the new joiners as trainees for a certain period (say 1 yr).
In my opinion, salary is less & most of them depend on net take home to meet their monthly expenses.
Discuss with the employees about the importance of such deductions & proceed accordingly.
Few may accept the proposal & others may opt it after certain period.
But this does not solve his Problem of paying PF ESIC which he wants to avoid without hiking salary.
By the way, my post has been deleted. Though some of you read it.
I think someone reported it as spam ....
