Note: Please bear in mind that this is a discussion board, not a place to advertise childcare vacancies or recruit childminders/nannies etc. We don't mind the odd mumsnet regular mentioning that they're looking for a job/mindee (although you're probably better off in MN Local) but repeated job "ads" and posts from nanny/babysitting agencies aren't fair to people who are paying for small business ads. Do feel free to report any you see. Thanks, MNHQ.

Is this odd?

Lady wants a nanny but doesn't want to pay the tax, instead pay the nanny a gross wage & let her sort her own tax out. Is that allowed?

Another thing is petrol allowance - she doesn't want to pay that but the nanny to claim back from tax?
Is that allowed?

So confused

Doesn't want to pay employers national insurance, whichin a full time nanny job could be a couple of thousand a year.

Wonder what else they would not do... Give you paid time off?

Move along, it's a non starter assuming you are in the UK.

It's not allowed - and sorting out your own tax (being self-employed essentially) means you lose a lot of other rights. 'Sort your own tax' is code for 'I don't want to be an employer'.

It's not allowed, but not that unusual unfortunately. Tell the nanny to find another job.
