Deciding on your nanny's salary? We advise that you agree nanny salary on a gross wage with your nanny
In the nanny industry net-wage agreements are surprisingly common. But a net wage agreement can have serious financial implications for both the employer and the employee.
By agreeing a net nanny salary the employer is essentially writing a blank cheque - committing to pay ALL tax and NI contributions on behalf of their nanny, irrespective of any changes in the legislation and without taking into account her individual tax code or tax position.
Agree the nanny salary on a gross wage basis
A gross nanny salary protects the employer's total costs and means they will not be affected by changes in the legislation, nor will they run the risk of getting lumbered with any unpaid tax from their nanny's previous employment.
