Use of Annexure K in PF

Annexure K is a documentary proof that consists of how much PF amount was transferred in between exempted to unexempted establishments and vice versa.

Earlier EPF members used to apply for PF transfers offline, at that time the new employer used to ask the EPF member to submit annexure K.

But now EPF amounts are transferring online, so at present, there is not much use of annexure K.

But there are some times when you transfer your PF amount from unexempted establishment (normal establishment) to exempted establishment (PF trust), then the new employer i.e exempted one will ask you to submit the annexure K.

If you transfer PF from exempted to the unexempted establishment, then there is no need to submit Annexure K to anyone. But you can download your annexure K online on the UAN portal and you can also check transferred PF amount on your PF passbook.
