Holiday Allowance for nannies

2019 June 22
Our recommended partners at www.PayrollForNannies.co.uk provide payroll advice for
parents and have created this content.
A full time nanny is entitled to 28 days holiday (5.6 weeks) which includes bank holidays.
Employers are entitled to choose all the dates of holiday nanny should take, but in practice
nanny normally chooses 2 weeks while the employer chooses the other 2 weeks.
In your contract with nanny, make sure you ask for notice for nanny’s proposed holiday this
will allow you to find alternative childcare. Some employers ask for at least 4 weeks notice.
We would recommend you keep note of holiday taken paid or unpaid, just in case nanny
leaves part way through the year and has over taken on holiday. This way any unpaid or
over paid holiday can be paid/deducted in her final payslip.
If nanny works more than 5 days a week, their holiday entitlement is capped at 28 days. It is
not a problem if you agree more day’s holiday with nanny – this could be a condition of her
working for over a stated amount of time.
If nanny is part time, she is entitled to annual leave (28 days including bank holidays), but
pro-rated. So if nanny works 2 days a week, her holiday allowance is calculated:
2 days a week x 5.6 annual holiday allowance = 11.20 days holiday.
You must not round the holiday allowance down to 11, but can round it up to 11.5 days.
If nanny works different hours each week, you calculate her holiday pay by averaging her
last 12 weeks worked hours then multiply it by 5.6, this then gives you her holiday
entitlement in hours for the year and when she has a day’s holiday or was due to work on a
public holiday, whatever hours she was scheduled to work that day are then deducted from
her overall annual entitlement.

Starter Checklist

Our recommended partners at www.PayrollForNannies.co.uk  provide payroll advice for parents and have created this content.

 

Normally a nanny who has just started in your employment will hand you their P45 from previous employment which details the tax code, gross earnings and tax deducted.

P45’s are only valid and used if they are for the current tax year.

If this is nanny’s first ever job, she will not have a P45 and will be required to complete a Starter Checklist.

Other reasons for completing a Starter Checklist could be that nanny has misplaced or lost her P45 or has not worked in the current tax year.

The starter checklist once completed will advise what tax code needs to be operated for nanny and if a student loan needs to be deducted.

What You Need to Know About Employers Liability Insurance (ELI)

2019 April 29

Our recommended partners at www.PayrollForNannies.co.uk  provide payroll advice for parents and have created this content.

ELI is a legal requirement for all employers in the UK, which is set by the Employers Liability (Compulsory Insurance) Act 1969.  As the employer, you must have insurance as soon as you employ a nanny.

Your policy must cover you for at least £5 million and come from an authorised insurer, as this will help you pay compensation if your nanny becomes ill or sustains an injury because of the work they do for you.
