Guidance on employing someone to work in your home

16 September 2015

HMRC has substantially revised their guidance on employing someone to work in your home.

Previous guidance on GOV.UK was very misleading regarding employing someone in your home, specifically nannies and au pairs as it implied that they could be self-employed. This is not the case and HMRC has reviewed all the guidance on this area and has updated it to accurately advise on employment status for domestic workers.

GOV.UK revised guidance: Employing someone to work in your home.
