The rules regarding a nanny having more than one employer are:- the employer who first registers the nanny as an employee will normally be instructed to apply all the nanny’s tax allowance to the employment. However, a nanny may instruct the tax office to proportion her tax free allowance relevant to the number of days she works for each employer, thus providing a more equal split of the personal tax allowance – otherwise any subsequent employer who registers the nanny as an employee will be told to tax all pay at Basic Rate and will be required to deduct 20% tax from every pound of gross pay.

The agency advises that pay should be written in gross terms; nanny or the company responsible for the payroll arranges with the Inland Revenue for the nanny’s tax allowance to be shared proportionally with the amount of hours she works in each employ.
