Delay in Salary process and EPFO

Hi Team,
Is it ok to pay the EPFO contribution without paying the salary to Employees?
Like, we are processing the Oct salary to Employees on 20th Nov and we want to pay PF on 15th Nov as 15th is the last date. Is it correct as per the law?
If not please suggest how to proceed further

Hi Rameshbv ,

Delay in salary process is highly not recommended however if there are unavoidable situations where the employer has to delay the payment . It is recommended to pay the EPFO after the salary is processed with the delay penalty .

But still if you want to avoid the penalty and are sure of employees not taking the legal way , if you have the below details you can fill the same .

Employer Details : PF account Details , Establishment ID, Name, Address, Exemption status , etc .
Employees Details in a form of ECR :
UAN No
Gross Wages
EPF Wages EPS Wages
EDLI Wages
EPF Contribution (EE Share) being remitted
EPS Contribution being remitted
Diff EPF and EPS Contribution (ER Share) being remitted
NCP Days
Refund of Advances
