Nanny Payroll Service

When you employ a nanny in the UK, you not only have to find the best carer for your child/children, you also become an employer and as such you take on a host of responsibilities. For instance, you have to draw up an employment contract with your nanny within eight weeks of her starting date and you must also give your nanny a payslip every time she gets paid.

At Happy Feet Childcare we work closely with a specialist childcare payroll company called Nannytax. They can provide you with a fully comprehensive nanny payroll service, as well as advice and full legal support relating to the employment and pay of your nanny.

When you hire a nanny and become an employer, UK law requires you to:

  • Register as an employer with HMRC
  • Keep a payroll record and provide payslips on their behalf
  • Pay Employee's Income Tax and National Insurance Contributions
  • Pay Employer's National Insurance Contributions
  • Provide an annual summary of all these deductions and payments


As an employer you are also responsible for paying Statutory Sick Pay and Maternity Pay. The latter may be reclaimed in full from the state.

Remember that National Insurance Contributions go towards your employee's entitlement to unemployment and state pension benefits. Nannies are increasingly aware of their rights as employees and an employer who takes care of their nanny's PAYE properly, will be considered a good employer in this respect and enjoy the increased confidence of their nanny.

How to get started

Becoming an employer for the first time can be a source of great concern. If you do not have a working knowledge of the tax system, the responsibilities and legal obligations involved can be both time-consuming and complex.

Happy Feet Childcare recommends Nannytax, the UK's leading payroll service for employers of nannies and other domestic staff. They offer a complete support service to parents and they will not only take care of all your payroll responsibilities for you, but will also guide you through any legal issues that may arise.

The beauty of Nannytax is that their service is all inclusive. For a flat annual fee their service is all encompassing and will take care of your every need as a nanny employer.
