Hi... Our company implements PF after probation period (3 months). My question is...if we are hiring a candidate who already has PF with his current company, how do we transfer it to our company?
At the time of PF application, when we have to give the joining date; should we mention the actual date of joining or the date of completion of probation period?
Does this 3 months gap cause any issues to the employee?

In India from the first day of joining employee is eligible to EPF subject to ceiling of wages & already member of EPF in previous company.
However we don't know about rules in Dubai , so please confirm the location/country

Since the incumbent already employed with his/her previous employer and having an EPF a/c should have been allotted an UAN. As current employer you should obtain the filled form 11 and have to continue contributions to the very same UAN without a break. The status of 'Probation' is irrelevant for continuing the EPF contributions. As such you should make arrangements to remit the contributions, both employee as well as employer's for the period from the date of joining in your firm which includes the arrears and interest for the broken period (from the date of joining to till date). Its presumed the employee has not crossed Rs.15000 salary as of now.
