Nanny Payroll Service

International Nannies and Homecare offers Payroll services for your nanny or caregiver

Are you hiring a nanny or caregiver?  If yes, did you know according to governmental stipulations you are legally obligated to process payroll.

When you hire a domestic worker (a nanny or a caregiver), Canada Revenue Agency deem you to be an Employer and the domestic worker to be your Employee. Consequently, just like in any company, business etc., you must process payroll for the person(s) who work for you.

Should you opt to use our Payroll services you will be freed from the need to monitor and perform these ongoing obligations, and instead we will take care of all the payroll requirements for you. When you register for our payroll services, all you have to do is print the pay stub (Wage statement) and pay your nanny/caregiver employee on payday.  It’s that simple!  We take care of all the accounting administrative work on your behalf.

Our approach is a comprehensive one, tailored to meet the specific needs of families with domestic workers.  We perform tax calculations, filings and remittances, provide advice on labour laws and manage your payroll account with Canada Revenue Agency (CRA), Service Canada and the Canadian Workers’ Compensation Board.

Our selection of services allows you to choose the one that is right for you. So far we have helped hundreds of families across Canada with their nanny and caregiver payroll.

Call us for a complimentary consultation if you are unsure of your caregiver/nanny payroll tax situation. For more information on our full range of services and pricing please contact our Payroll Accountant Linh Tsiu at [email protected] or call at 1-604-786-2566.

 

New Mandates to the Labour Market Opinion Application

Dear Clients,

As of June 30, 2011 Human Resources and Skills Development Canada (HRSDC) have implemented new mandates regarding the third party representatives of employers hiring a foreign worker. From now on, only Immigration Consultants registered with The Immigration Consultants of Canada Regulatory Council (ICCRC) are permitted to provide Labour Market Opinion (LMO) related services to another person for a fee.

International Nannies and Homecare Ltd. has since hired the use of a fellow Association of Caregiver and Nanny Agencies Canada (ACNA) member, a long standing Immigration Consultant who is already registered with ICCRC, thus we are able to continue to provide the LMO service, either on it’s own or as part of the placement as a whole, for our clients.

For those persons considering or beginning the process of hiring a live-in caregiver, please make sure that if you pay for the services of a third party representative, you check they are now legally allowed to represent you. ICCRC are currently in the process of updating their website of new and existing members, you can contact them directly by phone or email to verify the authenticity of a member.

Any LMO application submitted by a paid representative who is not a member of ICCRC, will automatically be denied.

Further information relating to the changes to the LMO application can be found at the following link:
