provident fund act 1952 is applicable in case number of employees are more than 20. since number of employees would be only two provisions of act would not be applicable .  
section 1(3) of employees provident fund act provides that 
it applies - 
(a) to every establishment which is a factory engaged in any industry specified in Schedule I and in which twenty or more persons are 
employed and 
(b) to any other establishment employing twenty or more persons or class of such establishments which the Central Government may, 
by notification in the Official Gazette, specify, in this behalf: 
Provided that the Central Government may, after giving not less than two months? notice of its intention so to do, by notification in the 
Official Gazette, apply the provisions of this Act to any establishment employing such number of persons less than twenty as may be 
specified in the notification.

You do not need to deduct PF. As per employee provident fund act, minimum twenty employees are needed for deducting the PF.
