Employees Provident Fund is managed as per Employee Provident Fund and Miscellaneous Provisions Act, 1952. The Employees' Provident Fund Organization helps a person to cope up with his daily expenses and ensures that the current lifestyle of the employee is upheld even after the retirement. The scheme is mandatory for employees whose gross salary is less than or equal to fifteen thousand rupees per month.The scheme was particularly imposed on organizations to deduct and deposit PF contributions for the fortune welfare of its employees.
A business operating with more than 20 employees is eligible to enroll themselves in this scheme. An employee contributes 12% of his salary towards the scheme, and the employer also contributes 12% for the same. 1% of Admin Charges are included as well. The calculation is done on Basic Salary and Other Allowances, but HRA is excluded. The computed amount is known as PF Gross Salary.
PF comes along with major benefits for the employees. These include-
A company or startup should check a few aspects to get them enrolled under the scheme of the Employees' Provident Fund.

UAN stands for Universal Account Number. It is a 12- digit account number allotted by EPFO to every employee with which he manages his PF account.
