The Nannytax Story
It all began in 1993...
In 1993 a former Bookkeeper named Stephen Vahrman spotted a gap in the UK domestic employment market. He founded the first Nanny Payroll Service of its kind. Nannytax is born.
Nannytax becomes more than just a payroll bureau as Nannytax Legal, now known as Nannytax HR, is introduced. This became the first of our many additional services to encompass all areas of nanny employment.
Nannytax heads to no. 10 Downing Street. We petitioned the Government to approve nannies as childcare providers and to allow parents to claim the relevant benefits/tax relief via the Childcare Approval Scheme.
New Auto Enrolment duties are rolled out to domestic employers. We recruit a team of Pension experts to run a dedicated Nanny Pensions Service. Enable Auto Enrol is born, our second additional Nannytax service.
Nannytax hosts its 25th Anniversary party at The Shard in London, celebrating alongside leading figures around the industry.
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.
