Payroll FAQ

Is Payroll service necessary?

Upon hiring a Nanny, Housekeeper or Au pair, the Employer is responsible for submitting the correct tax and NI payments to HMRC and providing the Employee with payslips. Little Ones will liaise with HMRC on the Employer’s behalf and take care of the administrative routine.

How long will it take to set up the service?

Once the Employer provides Little Ones with all the necessary information, the Payroll service will be set up within two to ten working days.

What is required from the Employer to set up Payroll service?

  • Completed Little Ones Payroll information form (required by HMRC)
  • Employer’s National Insurance number
  • Employment information (start date, working days/hours, rate of pay)
  • Employee’s P45 or Starter’s checklist

Can the Employee be paid weekly, fortnightly or monthly?
