According to the PF Act, 12% of your PF Salary will go towards the Provident Fund. The company is also required to contribute the same 12%, out of which 8.33% would go towards the Employee Pension Scheme or EPS, and the remaining 3.67% is credited into the PF Account.
The monthly contribution is restricted to the PF Salary of INR 15,000/.
We need to set up the rules to ensure the correct PF contribution is calculated from both the employer and employee as per the Provident Fund Rules.
PF Calculation on Non- restricted wages will be:
12 % of Basic + DA
PF calculation on Restricted Wages will be:
If Basic + DA > 15000, PF = 12 % of 15000
b. If Basic + DA < 15000, PF = 12 % of (PF Wages or INR 15000 whichever is lower).
For international workers (IW), the wage ceiling of Rs 15,000 is not applicable.
