Failure to do this could make you liable for arrears of tax and will lead to your nanny being unable to claim benefits or realise his or her state pension in years to come. Most families employ a specialist payroll company to adminster the nanny's payroll.  Inland Revenue provide simplified documentation for employers of nannies.
