I thought of posting a private message I have sent to another forum member recently - hopefully more people will find it helpful when dealing with hiring a nanny.
Here is what I have found out:
You need to apply for AHV
in your kanton of residence: application is called "Anmeldung für Hausdienstarbeitgebende". Here is the link for it in kanton Aargau: http://www.sva-ag.ch/online-schalter...nte-downloads/
In order to apply you will need to have a BVG
(pension insurance) and Unfallversicherung
(accident insurance). The later one you can get with any insurance company, just send a few of them a request to compare the costs. Please note that you need both work related and non-work related accident insurance. Non-work related part you can deduct from nanny's salary later on if you chose to. BVG
insurance can in theory also be made with any company out there, however I found it difficult, cause they either try to charge you a high % or just reject you (don't ask me why). So I found out that there is state insurer who can not reject your application. Here is the link: http://www.chaeis.net/bvg-berufliche...anmeldung.html
. You need to fill in 2 documents: Formularsatz Anmeldung AN and Eintrittsmeldung.
It is also good, but not obligatory, to make a so called Krankengeldversicherung
, which would cover you in case your nanny falls sick and won't be able to work for long time. There are two options of coverage: you can chose 30 working days or 3 working days of waiting period, which would determine the price of it obviously. It can also be done with any insurance company out there.
Hope this helps.
