I paid salary arrears to my employees for the month of Jun to Aug in Dec. Accordingly, I paid the PF for the same on 07 Jan 18 clearly mentioning while preparing the challan as arrears for Jun to Aug. The delay was on account of the Principal Employer needing time to get approvals from his HO.
Now, the EPF site has charged me 7Q and 14B damages and interest.
Kindly advise.

In computerised system of making payments, you cannot write much ore than what the system permits. Therefore, you should have written the amounts in the "other" column of the challan. Otherwise, you should have clubbed the salary of Dec and the arrears and paid it without showing the arrears separately. You should also have got an opportunity to show cause when you have received notice. Now, you may file a review petition describing that the amount paid was arrears of salary and there was no delay in payment.
