ESIC Registration Online - An Overview
Employee State Insurance or ESI is a scheme commenced by the Government of India to offer medical, monetary, and other advantages to workers. ESI is managed by an autonomous authority – Employee State Insurance Corporation – which lies under the jurisdiction of the Ministry of Labour and Employment.
By law, any company that has more than 10 employees mandatorily needs to have ESI. In some states, the number of employees is 20. For employees earning more than ₹21,000 per month, including basic salaries and dearness allowance, the insurance is deducted from their pay.
Also, taxpayers with a turnover of less than ₹1.5 crore can opt for the composition scheme to get rid of tedious GST formalities and pay GST at a fixed rate of turnover.
