Dear Ramakanth,
Ethically speaking, the employees who left the organisation and were entitled/ paid bonus at existing and wage rates/ceiling are also entitled to the arrears of bonus. As a sincere executive, you must keep calculations ready and draw the same for the purpose of disbursement, as later on stray claim cases from individual to individual may waste a lot of time and confusion in drawing the arrears of bonus. Moreover, as of commercial accounting and statutory audit point of view for the organisation, the amount of unclaimed arrears of bonus have necessarily to be shown as liability in the books of accounts of the organisation in order to arrive at the true results of the profit and loss of the organisation to appear in the annual audited accounts.

Hello Sir,
Will you please guide me about latest amendment of Bonus Act 2015. We have paid Ex-gretia to all our employees @ 20% on 3500/- for year 2014-15.
My question is, do we have to make difference payment to all employees for year 2014-15 @ 20% ?
Thank you in advance

Dear Sagar,
Your question is not clear, whether ex-gratia payment was made in the name of bonus or otherwise. If paid ex-gratia bonus, the amount should not be less than that prescribed in the amendment act. If paid less than the enacted sum of bonus (as is evident) with reference to the revised wages, you will have to pay difference.

Mr. Bittu,
Can you please quote the source of your information? Also, do you feel anyone can get benefitted by such type of basless rumour on your part, if you cannot interpret the enacted law properly? Better go through the Act, if not already seen.
By making such a baseless tatement, do you mean to say, an Act duly ppassed by both the houses and assented by the Hon. President of India is wrong and only you and the source of your information is correct?

Dear Sir,
Thank you very much for your guidance. Yes Ex-gretia was paid in the name of Bonus of Rs 8400/- to all existing as well as left employee for year 2014-15.
Therefore as per amendment Company will have to make the payment of difference amount (16800-8400) of Rs 8400/- to all employees.
Am I correct?

Dear Sagar,
You have not made clear on another issue, whether the bonus is being paid by your company to all employees irrespective of the prescribed wage limit or to the employees falling within the prescribed wage limit.

Hi I have a pf account for which I have applied for withdrawal but however the claim was not processed as there a compliance issue that is the coverage should be 2011 and the coverage started in Dec 2015 and the company had paid the admin charges for the differential year and also it was informed to me by the compliance department of pf office that there were some employees in differential year who were eligible for pf scheme but the company has not made the required contribution from employee and employers end. The pf department is now holding the settlement and conveying that they have handed over the case to the enforcement officer and are waiting for his report which will be submitted after necessary inspection of the organisation. Would request you to suggest me a way out to get the pf amount settled and also if lodge a case against my employer and pf office in the labor court.
