Sharing a Nanny is easy
It’s becoming increasingly common for two or more families to share a nanny between them, and currently about 20% of all Nannytax clients are in a share. This figure has been rising steadily in the last few years, and we have seen a dramatic increase since September 2008. We expect this trend to continue as nannysharing provides an affordable solution to the childcare dilemma, especially in the current economic climate.
What is a Nanny Share?
A nannyshare is where two (or more) families employ the same nanny to either care for all children at the same time, or work, say 3 days for one family and 2 days for the other. Although it isn’t necessary for the families to know each other, some communication between them is advisable; in fact lack of communication is one of the main reasons it can take a long time to set up a share or why they sometimes fail altogether.
