EPF Compliance Instructions For Establishments With Multiple Branches For ECR Filing

As per EPFO circular dated 21st July 2017, the EPFO has noted that there are many establishments which have employees working at different locations and branches but the payment of PF dues of all the workers is made under a single PF code number and there was a need for a facility for field offices to monitor compliance in their respective inspection areas. Accordingly, a facility has been provided to such employers to furnish their location-wise employees particulars. The procedure to utilize the facility is detailed herewith. An employer can declare for each employee the period for which the employee has worked at a particular branch/location. The employer should use their login to add all the branches/ locations of the establishment in Form 5A. The period of posting of employees at various branches/locations can be declared by the employer by using the "Member Location Mapping" option under the "Establishment" tab in the employer's portal. This can be done either by entering data on the screen one by one or in bulk by uploading a file. The Field offices are directed to inform employers about this facility and advise them to use the same. Thus, it shall be mandatory on the part of all such multiple location establishments to fill the details of location-wise employees in Form 5A in the Member Location Mapping
