-----------------------------------
Hi

Just wondering how much i should charge for my 2.5 year old twin boys and their 5 year old brother to be minded in my home from 8.30 -5.00 3 days a week.

The 5 year old will be in school till 1 and I will be able to drop and collect from school most days.

Another query i have is that I´ve seen post stating that if a child minder is in my home and I am am an employer i am liable to pay Emp PRSI and deduct tax for them etc.

How does this work does this cost come out of the gross amount agreed or should it be paid on top of the the agreed rate. I have seen it mentioned in other threads that if the children are minded in the carers home the person can be self employed but not if they come to mine. Is this really the case ?
In the past I worked in a company on contract as a self employed person and paid my own tax and PRSI at year end. Just wondering why/if childcare would be different?

My boys are in creche now but would like them to be minded at home but not sure about all the extra management overheads.

Thanks!

M
