All parents who are interested in hiring a nanny should be aware of the employment procedures as stated by law. All parents, as employers, should enrol the nanny as an employee with HMRC. This procedure can be expedited by using a nanny payroll service company.
The employer and employee should agree on a contract stating the details with respect to the working schedule, wage and payments, and responsibilities of each interested party. The contract should be written and produced by a nanny payroll service company. We recommend www.nannytax.co.uk
The employer has the responsibility to pay a weekly or monthly wage (as agreed with the employee) and provide payslips through the nanny payroll service company.
