Is there any statute or guideline which governs hiring of staff as consultants? We need to bring clerical staff for short-term project of 3 months. We do not want to create employer-employee relationship as the staff do not want to enrol under PF.

Hi Vivek, My opinion is as follows:-
As you do not want to establish employee-employer relationship, you can appoint them as consultants for a fixed term against a consolidated payment called Legal & Professional charges. You should pay them legal and professional charges against a bill for the professional services rendered during the month. In the absence of a PAN, tax deducted @ source (TDS) on such legal and professional service charges paid will be double, as per provisions of the Income Tax Act / Rules.
