ESI Registration

Online ESI Registration - An Overview

Employee State Insurance, or ESI, is a government-run programme that provides workers with medical, financial, and other benefits. Employee State Insurance Corporation, an autonomous entity within the Ministry of Labour and Employment’s competence, is in charge of ESI.

Any company with more than ten employees is required by law to have ESI. The number of employees in some states is as high as 20. The insurance is deducted from the income of employees earning more than $21,000 per month, including basic salaries and dearness allowance.
Additionally, taxpayers with a turnover of fewer than 1.5 crores can use the composition plan to avoid time-consuming GST paperwork and pay GST at a fixed turnover rate.

FAQs on ESI Registration

To recognize each employee, the ESI scheme allots a unique identification number to every worker. This number is called the insurance number and is used for all operational purposes.
The law of India states that it is mandatory for every employee to register within ESI. It is considered a statutory responsibility. A factory or establishment has to apply for the scheme within 15 days from the date it becomes eligible.

Once a factory or establishment is recognized within the ESIC Act, it has to file ESI returns two times per year. For each return filed, the underlying documents have to be submitted:

    • A register of wages
    • A register of the attendance of employees
    • A register of Form 6
    • Challans and returns of every month
    • A register of any accidents that may have occurred on the premises of the business,
ESI forms can be filled online but they require exact information with no buffer for mistakes. Additionally, the application is long and exhaustive and requires meticulous attention to be filled accurately. At legaltoast we ensure that no error is made and that the ESI registration is completed as fast as possible and with no glitches. We make the procedure seamless and smooth for you.
