For Employers

Click on the white down arrow in the Employers Tab for the full list of payroll forms to set up your payroll. The 3 short steps to payroll set up are:

  2. Complete a payroll form
  3. If required complete a contract questionnaire

These 3 forms are available together under Getting the payroll started.

Employing a nanny in the UK means that you are required by law to register with HMRC as an employer and operate a PAYE (Pay as you Earn) scheme. This obligation applies to employing anyone for a week or longer irrespective of country of origin.

Nannies do not meet HMRC criteria for self-employment. Therefore, the employer has the responsibility to declare their employees tax position to HMRC not their employees. Any tax payments not made the employer not the nanny will be liable to HMRC. Failure to register as an employer with HMRC, make late payments, submit paperwork behind schedule or file late employers annual returns can result in heavy penalties.

Please be aware that nannies and agencies often agree a net wage with employers but truly a nanny is paid a gross wage with NIC and tax withheld and paid to HMRC by the employer on the nannies behalf. Over and above this employers must pay Employers National Insurance contributions for each employee so check the true cost before agreeing a net wage figure.

Employers are also required by law to provide payslips for their employees showing tax and National Insurance deductions made to arrive at the net wage. Under the new self assessment laws an employee is required to keep payslips, P45's (Part 1a) and P60's (end of year summary) provided by their employer as proof of earnings.
