KUALA LUMPUR, 30 December 2020: The date for employers to remit their mandatory Employees Provident Fund (EPF) contribution for 2021 is now the 15th of every month, starting January 2021. This is in line with the original contribution payment date determined by the EPF.
Previously, the EPF provided an extension for contribution payment from the 15th to the 30th of every month from April until December 2020, to ease the burden of employers in light of the uncertainties surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic. The contribution payment date will revert to the original date to ensure employee contributions are paid without delay.
Contribution payments can be made on the EPF website via the i-Akaun (Employer) portal, Internet banking or by visiting the counter of appointed banks.
