How much does a nanny cost?

Trying to work out the cost of a nanny? This is a great place to start. Enter a gross figure into our free nanny calculator to see the nanny's tax based on their personal tax situation. This gives you an accurate picture of the tax and National Insurance payable.

My nanny wants to fix her net pay


If your Nanny has given you parts 2 and 3 of their current P45 then enter the tax code from the P45 below.

If you don't have this information select 'I don't know the tax code' and we will provide you with further options.

NET RATE REQUESTED? Always agree a gross pay rate if you can. Read about net pay rates here.

SCOTTISH TAXPAYER? The tax rates are slightly different. You can still use the calculator to get a rough idea by dropping the 'S' at the start of the tax code, or contact us for some firm figures.

PENSION will apply in most cases. Read about pensions here.

Figures are for guidance and not for using on payslips. When you register with NannyMatters we'll give you firm figures, including pension, in a free personalised illustration.
