Nanny costs can be a nightmare

We know that figuring out how much a nanny costs and what you can afford is a nightmare. Things like net pay, gross pay, taxes, and pensions are hard to understand. What will a nanny actually cost you at the end of the day?

That’s why we’ve designed a nifty calculator to help compare the costs of hiring and employing a nanny in the UK. 

The calculator shows the estimated cost for you after employer National Insurance and pension contribution depending on:

  • the nanny’s gross hourly rate before any taxes and
  • the hours you need

How to calculate the cost of a nanny

Choose the number of hours you will need a nanny for each week. Next, click the ✓ to select it and then click below the drop-down menu to view the graphs.

You will be able to compare your monthly and hourly costs for nannies of different gross hourly rates.

Bear in mind…

  • These calculations are based on the tax year 2022/2023 (ending 5 April 2023)
  • The numbers given are only an estimate. They make some assumptions about your nanny’s pension, National Insurance category and other income.
