Cash In Hand
All workers earning money for doing a job, full time, part time, temporary or on a casual basis have a legal obligation to pay Tax and National Insurance. Employers, including those of nannies, are required by law to make the deductions from the employee’s pay and pay this to the government on their behalf. Not to do so is considered 'PAYE fraud' and HMRC are becoming increasingly vigilant in this, particularly with the introduction of Real Time Information. If an employer is caught paying cash in hand, you are putting yourself at risk of substantial fines.
If you have not paid tax on your nanny's income, we advise declaring it before HMRC catch you.
We are able to backdate for as long as you need to go, we are regularly instructed to go back several years for clients who realise that they should have been declaring the pay and haven’t. We will liaise with HMRC for you so that you do not have to deal with them, once you instruct us we will do everything for you.
