Employee Provident Fund is a retirement benefit programme offered to all salaried employees in India. A company or organisation must register for EPF if it employs more than 20 individuals, including both temporary and permanent employees. Companies with fewer than 20 employees are permitted to self-register. Companies must register themselves within a month of reaching a membership threshold of 20 members. Additionally, there are fees associated with late registration for the Employee Provident Fund.

A cooperative society must register when the number of its employees reaches 50 or more While registered organisations are nevertheless subject to the Act's laws and rules even if their employee count is below the minimal requirement.

Employers have the choice to register either offline or online. However, the online registration process is preferred. You can get the registration form from the Employees' Provident Fund Organization's official website, www.epfindia.gov.in.

The Employees' Provident Fund came into existence with the promulgation of Employees’ Provident Fund Ordinance on the 15th of November, 1951.
