Part time furlough is a great opportunity for employers to bring a Nanny back on exactly the hours they need. It may be your situation has changed subtlety from a requirement of no childcare to perhaps needing some core hours to aid your own return to ‘normal’. The hope is that these part time hours will then develop back into the original role by latest November so as to avoid redundancy. We hope that furloughed nanny’s will embrace this opportunity to return to the workplace.
Step 1 –Agree the new temporary working hours in writing with your Nanny. Please see our template letter linked here.
Step 2 (a) – If you have asked your nanny to return part time and are keeping unworked hours at full pay you do not need to inform NannyPaye.
Step 2 (b) – If you have asked your nanny to return part time and you pay her weekly please read the next step however also refer to the notes at the end *.
Step 2 (c) – If you have asked your nanny to return part time and are paying 80% for unworked hours you must tell us 4 key facts no later than 10th of each month. This will allow us to calculate the payslip for that month using the method outlined by gov.uk. Please just copy and paste the below into an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org :
- Your name as the employer.
- Your postcode.
- The total hours your nanny would have normally worked in that month**.
- The number of hours your nanny will work out of this total in that month***.
Step 3 – NannyPaye will confirm receipt of your e-mail and calculate the pay accordingly.
Step 4 – We have made a calculator that will allow you to easily work out your claim amount from HMRC. Please see the 'Job retention scheme calculator' section.
Step 5 – Due to the claim being based on a hybrid of potential hours in calendar month v’s annual salary you must repeat this process for each month your Nanny is part time furloughed.
*If you pay your nanny weekly please tell us as soon as possible when the part time furlough will start from and provide the total hours your nanny would have worked in a normal week set against the hours that will be worked. You will not need to repeat this process weekly unless it changes.
**Should your nanny work normally Monday to Friday for 10 hours each day for July this figure would be 23 days (Mon-Fri) in July x 10 hours per day = 230 potential working hours in July.
***Should you have asked your nanny to work 5 hours a day every Monday and Wednesday for July this figure would be 9 days x 5 hours per day = 45 actual worked hours.
