Nanny Wages

Although au pairs and domestic workers living with a family can be exempted from the minimum wage requirements this is only when they live as part of the family sharing in tasks and leisure activities on the same basis as the family. Therefore most live in nannies are not exempted from the national minimum wage requirements in which case the minimum employers need to pay are the rates stated above less the accommodation offset.

Please contact Taxing Nannies if you require further information about nanny wages.
