Imagine the situation, you are a new mum or dad, you decide to return to work after maternity/paternity leave and employ a nanny to look after your baby. You agree a net salary with your nanny and you start paying her. Somewhere at the back of your mind you know you should be paying nanny taxes but you are busy starting back at work and then coming home to a baby, and matters get left.
Some months later it dawns on you that the nanny payroll has still not been sorted out and you panic. How much PAYE and National Insurance will be owed? Will there be interest to pay? Will penalties be levied for non or late submission of end of year returns at the rate of £100 per month? Will your nanny get into trouble? Will she be able to renew her visa? How will I pay my nanny’s tax?
And then you discover Taxing Nannies.
For those clients who have been in this position, they have found Taxing Nannies to be a professional, personable, friendly service which puts them at ease and reassures them that the nanny payroll service can be sorted out with a minimum of fuss. We have opened PAYE schemes retrospectively, prepared backdated payslips up to date, calculated outstanding PAYE and National Insurance liabilities, and even managed to get penalties cancelled in certain circumstances. We will also advise our clients what to do if they have financial difficulties in paying their tax liabilities on time. Our clients are so relieved that their affairs have been brought up to date and just as importantly they feel that they are in safe hands, that there are individuals at the end of the phone who they can talk to about their nanny tax and who will spend time going through matters.
Of course, most of Taxing Nannies’ clients do register on time and for them we provide the same professional, highly personal nanny payroll service. Many of our clients have commented on how helpful they find our staff following their initial conversation with our office.
We advise on the different types of nanny share, help our clients when their nannies are pregnant or on sick leave, discuss situations regarding termination of employment and calculate redundancy pay and assist our clients with all manner of employment issues. We also offer contracts of employment, for a small fee, personalised to the individual employer’s needs and we advise our clients to ensure that the contract reflects both the statutory requirements and their own wishes.
