EPF/Socso/PCB

Since I started working in my husband's shop, I just have to calculate the wages for my part-time workers. I don't need to worry about the staff's salary. All I need to do is keep an attendance of all the workers. Formerly I had to write down their attendance every single day. But since last year, we have the 'punch card' system. It helps me a lot in the sense that I don't need to keep an eye on their time.

As we all know, all permanent workers need to contribute EPF and Socso. Initially, I didn't need to be responsible for filling in the forms and paying the needed contributions. But few years ago, our accountant cum secretary wanted me to handle that as her people were rather busy. So I took over the chores until now. I even handle the PCB as I need to courier the cheque to the Income Tax Department in Putrajaya before the dateline ie 10th of each month. 

As for EPF and Socso, I was never late as we always pay on time via the bank. But I was late once for the PCB as I was busy before the Chinese New Year. So our company was penalized for being late. We had to pay for the fine.

Recently, one of my staff wanted to purchase a new car. So she checked her EPF contributions and she found out that no contribution was made in the month of May. According to my record, I had paid for that month. I had always wanted to go to the office to find out the reason but I couldn't find the time.

But yesterday morning, a letter came from EPF. It stated that they couldn't process the contributions as the form was not received by them. Anyway, I went to the office and settled the problem.

I don't actually know how much I had contributed but yesterday I found out my total contributions. It will be stagnant as I don't contribute anymore...

    1. I don't mind helping as long as they knew that I had helped without obligation.

  2. So since you've taking care of the salary, EPF, SOCSO and PCB, did you get reduction from your accountant and secretary annual fee?

    If not, I think you can request and discuss about it.

  17. It is good that the matter with EPF has been ironed out smoothly by you. You are really tasked with many responsibilities. Your boss must need to appreciate you more.

  18. processing such stuff was a marking of
    a great boss indeed, i mean some were lazy to do so
    to the point they forget already

  19. It sure is a must to do so, coz it will
    benefit everyone and most especially for the taxes

  20. on my salary statement there sure is a lot
    of deductions for various contributions but then it's fine so long as it was made properly

    most especially here on which government agencies has a bit slow process
