Hi- help please! If a gross wage is agreed (£10 per hour) are all natl insurance contributions taken from this? Is there a difference between employee & employer national insurance?
Thank you in advance

A gross wage will be what the employee is paid before their national insurance and tax. The employer's NI is additional to this.

Employees NI is deducted fron gross salary.
Employers NI is paid on top of gross salary.
Employer is responsible for paying both to HMRC.

I do think its unfair employers have to pay ni for a nanny. It can add £2/3k on a year

And esp out of their nett/take home pay

Have always said childcare costs should be taken out of gross salary and then the employers taxed on what is left

Sure I have asked this before but why do they need to pay it. Who came up with the idea bloody government

Think it dates back to 1911.

Blondes it can easily be over £4,000 a year (on £12.90ph gross for 55hpw).

As Nick says it goes back to 1911, although it was a fixed amount per week until 1974.

Sorry I work 3 days a week hence lower figure

It's a huge amount for 5 day /full time sad

Sure that's why so any families want to pay cih or a se nanny to escape the ni

Be much easier just to quote a gross figure and times
By weekly hours to work out what a nanny would cost
For parents
