If you have somebody coming to your home you must pay at least min wage per hour. You must also register as an employer and pay the minders tax.
Hope this helps

Hello

I am in Dublin 6 and have a baby girl who will be 7 months when I go back to work at the end of JUne/early July. I have spoken to a couple of people about minding the baby in my home from 8am to 6pm Monday to Friday but I don´t know what I should expect to pay someone? Can anyone advise what I should pay per week?

Thanks a lot!

You may fined unregistered minders don´t want to be on the books but as an employer it is your responsibility to pay their tax and deduct prsi from wages. Revenue will not except an excuse the minder wanted cash in hand. There has been a case recently of revenue carrying out an audit and issueing a tax bill and fine to the family and a tax bill to the minder.

It really is a matter for negotiation. I interviewed several potential childminders recently and some looked for as low as 50 per day to a max of the minimum wage . We eventually agreed on 75 per day for 9.5 hour day. And you will find that most minders prefer not to be on the books, that was our experience anyway. We are looking again and i don´t think I will offer anymore than 70 this time

Why is it unfair Zazi, these were the sums that the interviewees were asking for.
