Government regulations are very explicit in the area of taxation, work cover and superannuation. If you employ staff yourself then you must ensure that all your legal responsibilities have been satisfied.
The nanny agency such as Placement Solutions can advise you further, however your accountant can offer you the most up to date professional advice.
We can take care of all employment requirements for you so you are fully compliant with the ATO. Your nanny will be paid fortnightly by our payroll division Just Family Nanny Payroll and all taxes, workcover, superannuation are paid and accounted for as well as entitlements such as accrued sick and holiday leave.
Other responsibilities you need to consider for permanent placements are annual leave and sick leave.
Please remember that a good employee is worth looking after and that only a responsible employer can expect the same in return.
Should you require more information or if we can be of assistance to you do not hesitate to call us Monday to Friday 9.00 to 5.00 on 1300 854 624.
