PF Return Filing
A social security system known as the Provident Fund was established to encourage employees to save and to benefit them during retirement. Both the company and the employee make contributions to the PF on a monthly basis. The PF contribution paid by the employee can only be withdrawn by the employee during his or her employment, with a few exceptions.
Employers who are PF registered are required to complete PF returns on a monthly basis. Each month’s PF return filings must be completed by the 25th. We’ll go over the various forms for submitting PF returns in detail below. Employers can use the Unified site to conveniently file their PF return.
