The Nanny Hub 2020 | The Nannytax Story

2020

2020 was off to a great start, we were busy attending several Early Years events and held a popular seminar on nanny employment at the Nursery World Show’s Nanny Hub. Little did we know that a few weeks later the country would be in lockdown.

Over the course of the pandemic we expanded our payroll and customer service team and built a furlough portal entirely in-house to accommodate the needs of families who wished to utilise the Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme. We aspire to continue to source and develop innovative solutions that support families, nannies and all those working across this fantastic sector of the UK childcare industry.
