Is PF registration necessary for every Private Limited organisation?
NO, if an organisation has 20 or more employees, then they have to register under EPFO.
Why do I need to register the organisation on an EPFO online portal?
Because without registration, you can’t generate an online challan, and you can’t create a user Id and password to access the details on the EPFO portal.
Is this mandatory to complete the registration process of every established organisation?
Yes, it is mandatory to complete the registration of every organisation separately.
What can you do if you forget the employer ID or Password?
In case you forgot your employer ID and password, then you click on the forgot password, enter your alternate ID, such as E-mail ID and contact number and then you can reset your password.
In case I forget to fill in the PIN details or any other details during the registration, can I fill in the details later?
No, in case you forgot to enter any of the details, then you can’t fill in later. You have to fill in all the details again and have to request a new PIN.
What is the Purpose behind additional authorised signatories to provide email and mobile numbers?
Basically, Email and number are two essential means that are used to communicate other PF account details after registration. If any editing, any other new details will be sent to an alternate number that you have been provided.
