Social insurance contributions
Familes and Nannies have to contribute to AHV / AVS if the person is older than 17 years old. Half of the contributions are paid by the employer and the other half by the employee (deducted from their salary). You need to register your nanny with the AHV / AVS in your canton of residence after which you will receive quarterly invoices for the social contributions. The Invalidity Insurance, Family Insurances and the Unemployment Insurance also fall part of the social contributions and are all submitted through the AHV / AVS. Should the nanny earn less than 21 060CHF per annum, the income tax can also be submitted through the AHV.
