UAN Unified Portal for Employers

Universal Account Number (UAN) is a unique number given to every EPF member that is permanent and does not change with the job, just like your PAN number. An employer has to become the member of EPF if there are 20 or more employees of specified establishment types. Other establishments, not statutorily required to register, can register voluntarily. Employer responsibilities for EPF are

  • Generate UAN for the new employee and upload KYC information.
  • Update family particulars and nomination of all employees who are EPF members.
  • Deduct employee share from employee wages, add matching employer contribution, EDLI contribution and administrative charges and remit to EPF along with prescribed return immediately after disbursement of salary. (last date 15th of the month).

To facilitate easy compliance by the employers, EPFO has provided online facilities starting from the registration of the Establishments, filing of monthly returns integrated with online payment of the contributions and charges.

In Dec 2016, EPFO came up with Unified Portal for Employers which it calls UAN 2.0. It os Unified Portal for employers with UAN Based simplified Electronic Challan cum Return filing system. So in UAN 2.0,

  • The Electronic Challan cum Return would be UAN based instead of member ID based.
  • The linking of the existing UAN of the member with the present employment would necessarily be done by the employer before the filing of UAN based ECR. Earlier this was done after filing of ECR based on member IDs.
  • The member details i.e. name of member, date of birth, father’s / Husband’s name etc. would be same for all the employments, since the details would be fetched from UAN database of member
  • UAN upfront allotment introduced. The UAN in respect of member with first-time employment would be got generated by the employer prior to the filing of ECR for that member. In the earlier version, the employer used to file ECR with member IDs and the UAN was allotted later on the basis of first-time declaration made by the employer
