Domestic payroll is confusing.

Australian law determines that most Australian Nannies need to be employed.  Our services allow parents to set up a fair and legal working arrangement with a professional nanny. 

Paying your nanny on a payroll will give you peace of mind to know that you are meeting all your legal requirements as an employer.

Paying a nanny on the books demonstrates that you take their job seriously and provides your nanny with employment security to commit to your role long term

We set you up to employ your nanny and ensure you meet your payroll obligations.

Why should you pay your nanny on a payroll?

professional

Employing your nanny demonstrates that you take their career seriously.  Employment security helps your nanny commit to your role long term.

Paying a nanny is rarely as simple as transferring cash. But our simplified processes make it almost that easy for you to meet your legal obligations. With NannyPay’s electronic timesheets, you and your employees will be able to keep a record of hours worked and entitlements earned. 

We then use Single Touch Payroll Australia’s secure payroll platforms and customised programmes to ensure you are meeting your employer obligations. These include withholding tax and other deductions, and processing payments to the ATO, before your domestic employee seamlessly receives their net wages to their nominated bank account.

The ATO requires everyone who employs domestic staff to register with the PAYG tax system. NannyPay makes this obligation easy to adhere to, with the provision of ATO compliance in our payroll service.

Our team will register you (our client) for PAYG Withholding and obtain a Withholding Payer Number (WPN), lodge TFN Declarations, report and pay withheld taxes to the ATO on your behalf, and provide PAYG Payment Summaries to employees and lodge end of financial year reports with the ATO.

All employers in Australia are required to adhere to Fair Work obligations as covered by the Fair Work Act 2009. NannyPay assists domestic employers in compliance with Fair Work standards and legislation. We provide guidance regarding correct pay rates and entitlements for nannies under the Miscellaneous Award.

Once set up, we make things as easy as possible for you to process payments. We direct debit your account each fortnight to the payroll costs, including your domestic employee’s wages and fees.

When a domestic employee works over 30 hours a week with a family, they legally must be paid Super. It is often standard for Super to be offered/asked for in arrangements with less hours as well. We make it easy for you to provide your valued employee with Super and will  make quarterly contributions on your behalf to their nominated account.

When employing a domestic employee, you are required to hold this insurance. It covers you legally and financially if a worker is injured in your home. NannyPay will liaise with you to obtain the satisfactory level of Workers Compensation Insurance required for your employee/s and organise the documentation involved.

Single Touch Payroll (STP) is an initiative from the Australian Government to streamline the reporting of information about employees. It is now a requirement that all employers use STP and provide specific information each pay cycle. NannyPay’s software is integrated with Single Touch Payroll, making it easy for us to ensure your requirements as an employer are met.
