The benefit of employing an Ofsted Registered Nanny

Some families can claim back money spent on employing a nanny. In April 2007 Ofsted replaced the former Sure Start Childcare Approval Scheme. Now when employing an Ofsted Registered Nanny, there are two types of financial support available. Working tax credits and employer-supported childcare vouchers. At Sunrise Nanny Agency we offer nannies who are Ofsted registered enabling some families to receive a proportion of your nanny’s salary through tax credits or salary sacrifice scheme. Majority of our nannies are able to register with the scheme. It costs the Nanny £103 a year to register. Some nannies have already registered although many nannies wait to see if a family requires this, in these circumstances, we encourage the family to fund or part fund the cost of the nanny registering.

Employer Supported Vouchers through salary sacrifice

Childcare voucher schemes normally work through salary sacrifice, which means parents can opt to receive childcare vouchers instead of part of your normal salary. Childcare vouchers are free of tax and national insurance for parents and employers. It does not affect your nanny’s salary or the amount of tax and national insurance you pay your nanny. The saving in tax and national insurance is typically worth around £900 a year for basic-rate taxpayers, so families can save around £1,800 a year. Your savings will depend on the amount you earn and the amount of tax you currently pay. You can receive childcare vouchers of up to £55 a week (or £243 a month) from your employer, depending on your earnings. Broadly speaking, basic-rate taxpayers can receive up to £55 a week (or £243 a month), higher-rate taxpayers can receive up to £28 a week (or £124 a month) and additional-rate taxpayers can receive up to £22 a week (or £97 a month). You can pay the nanny the voucher electronically in to their bank account or by cheque.

Working Tax Credits

Working Tax Credits will not be appropriate for many families, however families with joint incomes less than £40,000 a year could benefit. Families can claim up to 70% off the cost of employing a nanny. The maximum you can claim is £175 for one child or £300 for 2 or more children. The amount varies depending on household income. We recommend calling the Tax Credit Help Line on 0845 300 3900 for further advice.
