How EPF Contribution Works?

EPF Contribution consists of two parts;

Employer Input + Employee  Input

Calculate Interest on EPF

Basic Salary +  Allowance =  RM5,000

Employee’s contribution towards EPF = 12% of  RM15,000 = RM600

Employer’s contribution towards EPS = 8.33% of RM5000 = RM415

Total EPF contribution every month = RM600 + RM415 = RM1015

*The interest will be calculated every month but will be deposited only at the end of the financial year.
