Our organization does not have any contributory member and hence did not pay any PF amount. Then, we started receiving notices from EPFO to make the payments for the month where payments are not made, when enquired further they have asked to make administration charges in case of no contributory member available in a month that too in a rude tone. After several follow up's they have shared the info on doing it online i.e., Payments -> Payment (Direct Challan) -> Actionable Direct Challan List -> Challan Entry.
This has an option to select the month for which we want to make the payment along with Challan Type (Administrative/ Inspection Charges Challan and Miscellaneous Challan). They have asked to choose Administrative/ Inspection Charges Challan as challan type.
Until here everything is fine, After selecting Administrative/ Inspection Charges Challan - It opens a table with different charges particulars (Administration Charges and Inspection Charges) along with account details (A/C No 1, A/C No 2, A/C No 10, A/C No 21 and A/C No 22) of which A/C No 2 and 22 are editable.
When i have asked under which section should i make the payment and how much it should be, they are asking me to come down to EPFO office to clarify. Does some one know what should i pay in case of no employees/contributory member in a given month and under which account i should be paying that amount. They have also shared a pdf - https://epfindia.gov.in/site_docs/PD...butionRate.pdf
which doesn't give complete details of what i am referring to. It just gives a statement saying 75/- should be paid in case of no contributory member as minimum administrative charges. But under which section is my question.
Appreciate your help if you can share any inputs. I am looking to follow the compliance but due to lack of proper help/guidance and material from EPFO, I am not able to do that.
