Many people think nannies, caregivers, or that learning supervisor you just hired are independent contractors. They are actually your employees, even if they only work part-time or for multiple families. The IRS is really clear that you are required to withhold and pay employer taxes. That sounds complicated and hard to do, and that’s where we come in. We believe you deserve an easy way to pay legally so you’re always above board. We created Nest Payroll, a native iOS app for your iPhone or iPad, which takes care of all your tax work, while making payday a cinch. Why does paying on the books even matter? It benefits everyone: Your employee receives the safety net of unemployment insurance, Social Security, Medicare, the ability to build credit, and verifiable income for basic needs like renting an apartment. You’ll sleep better knowing you’re protected from fines, penalties, wage theft lawsuits and risk to your professional career that can be triggered when a former employee files for unemployment. You might think it’s expensive to pay employer taxes, but it really isn’t too bad! It’s about 10% more, which is well worth the peace of mind you’ll get for following the law. And paying above board means you can take advantage of tax credits for dependent care. Many families even break even. https://nestpayroll.com/terms-of-service https://nestpayroll.com/privacy-policy-app-link Support URL https://nestpayroll.com/support
Next payroll team not only sold my retrospective tax situation, but also help me navigate through the set up of local state tax. The user interface is simple and affordable. This is one of the best apps for running Nanny Payroll !
I am really impressed with this app. As a CPA, I have manually handled payroll, and Nest does all the compliance work including tax filings and tax payments in a fraction of the time - with no mistakes. I found the link to Venmo once the paycheck is approved especially helpful. (Very nice integration!) My employer (nanny) really appreciated receiving her paystubs and W-2s electronically. Both times I’ve reached out to support, I received a response within 1-4 hours. I’ve never had any issues using the app, just specific payroll questions (didn’t want to duplicate what Nest does). I highly recommend this app for household employee payroll!
I’ve been using this app for a few months now and it has been easy and affordable. I use it to pay my house/dog sitter when I need to be away all day. The only complaint I have is the pay option through Nest. I tried it once and it took a week for my employee to get her pay deposited in her account. Not sure how my employer gets my time on Thursday and deposits my pay the next day. Maybe they pay a lot more for a service. I switched to a work around by transferring the net pay to my employee from my checking account as we use the same Credit Union. It’s easy. Just process the payroll through nest and nest gives you the net amount to transfer. I make a note in the transfer of “Payroll”. Every quarter the taxes are pulled out for the employee and employer portions, so make sure your setting that money aside so you don’t get a surprise. Nest set up my state federal tax for me, I didn’t have to do a thing.
I have been using this app for almost 2 years to manage my nanny’s payroll. The best part is the highly responsive customer support team that you can reach by email or text. It truly feels like a concierge service in an app.
This app is very user-friendly and the company provides fantastic customer service!
This is a great resource. I needed something easy . Payroll each week is seamless.
We used Nest Payroll for about a year and a half while we had our nanny. They provided wonderful customer support, answered all our questions, helped us get set up with tax id, provide tax payments, etc. After our nanny moved away and we switched to daycare, it was easy to cancel our subscription; we did elect to pay for the extra end of year tax form support (W-2 and Schedule H, etc.) which they’d provided wonderfully before. The app is very easy to use. Thank you so much Nest Payroll for everything- you really made the whole process very easy (which this tired momma really appreciated)! Highly recommended- they definitely earned five stars.
I have used the app for almost 3 years and it was so easy to use. The tax reporting was simple, paystub issuing was trivial. The one time I had to contact support they helped me immediately and then very soon a feature was addd to the app for my problem (w4 dependent claims).
We’ve been using Nest for close to a year, and I love how painless it makes it to pay employees legally. It guides you through everything and even gives you a heads up when you have upcoming quarterly tax payments. To the developers: one feature request that I would love is for the ability to do two week pay periods and have an employee portal where employees can log their hours.
Have been using for a couple years and multiple nannies, very easy to get setup, they handle all the work, and easy to use!
