Dear,

Its not non-compliance. The company is required to contribute to gratuity fund during the year or at year-end, when actuarial valuatio is done and there is shortfall in the plan assets.

You simply debit the gratuity fund acount in company books against the payment made directly by the company to employee..

In Company books;

Grautity fund - current account Dr
Bank Cr


In Fund books;

Accumlated fund Dr
Company - current account Cr

Dear,

I am interested to know that how the plan assets would be overstated.

There exist a current account in the books of company as well as in the books of Gratuity Fund. This is used for such transactions.


Please correct me if i am wrong.

Dears,

Enteries passed by Star are correct.

The valuation of plan assets and liabilities has to be done by actuaries. When such valuation will be made, actuary will point out the excess or shortage of plan assets over liabilities (if any).

Excess amounts of contribution (than suggested by actuaries) paid to the Fund (due to any reason) will stand as receivable from the Fund and may be adjusted against subsequent payments / contribution.

Regards,


KAMRAN.

roll

my two cents...

1- not a non-compliance
2- excess payment shall be adjusted with future payments
3- petiwala bookshop does have a book named "gratuity law" (but dont know any book in the market for its accounting)

ps all of these points have been covered by kamran and star...so ) i think i added nothing extra

peace
