Tax and Legal Guide
All nannies in the UK are employed by the family for whom they work and not by the agency. As such, the family is responsible for paying your salary, including your tax and National Insurance contributions. If you do not already have one, you will need to apply for a National Insurance number. Once working, you should receive regular payslips indicating your salary and deductions made for tax and National Insurance. Employment contracts are not obligatory but may be helpful to aid understanding between the parties from the outset. In any event, it is perfectly reasonable for either the employee or the employer to request a contract.
