As I mentioned earlier the reasons for this problem is maybe incorrect UAN or incorrect member ID or previous PF account details which don’t have an exit date.

When you enter an incorrect UAN number then you will definitely find this error that “no previous employment details found against this UAN”. So when you get this error then immediately check whether you have entered correct UAN number or not.

2. Incorrect PF Member ID

Along with UAN number employees also have an option to enter PF account number ( PF member ID / MID) for PF transfer. If you enter incorrect PF member ID then also you will get this error.

Solution:

Step 1:- Use Get MID option to find your correct PF account number.  To do that click on Get MID option in PF transfer page at UAN member portal.

3. EPF Accounts with No Date of Exit

This is the most possible reason for this error. If your previous employer didn’t mention the date of exit for your previous PF account number then you cannot able to transfer your PF amount from that account. Because until the employer exits the employee till then EPF account numbers will be in the active stage.

Solution:

To solve this issue contact your previous employer and ask them to mention your EPF date of exit & EPF date of exit, remember only your employer can update your date of exit in their employer PF portal. Once the mention your exit date then you can transfer your PF amount online.

4. From Exempted Establishments to Non-Exempted Establishments & Vice Versa

When you are trying to transfer your PF amount from exempted PF establishments/trusts to non exempted establishments (or) from non exempted establishments to exempted establishments then also you may face this problem.

Solution:

Contact your employer and ask them to update trust details for your member ID and date of exit then you can transfer your PF amount without any further error.

  1. KINDLY NOTE THAT,

    PAN CARD IS ON NAME OF PROPRIETOR.*

    WHEREAS LEGAL NAME OF FIRM IS XXXXXXXX.

    SO IF PROPRIETOR APPLY FOR PAN CARD IN NAME OF FIRM AND WE APPLY AGAIN CAN WE GET PF CODE?

  2. Dear Sir,

    I have applied for fresh pf code for proprietorship through shram suvidha portal. after submitting and approved through digital signature. under PF Code column status shows that, “PAN NUMBER ENTERED BY YOU BELONGS TO ANOTHER ESTABLISHMENT”

    hence we could not get pf code number.

    KINDLY PROVIDE REMEDY AND HELP US TO SOLVE MATTER.
