Legal, Tax or other requirements to hire nannies/babysitters

We recently moved from the US. Our kids go to daycare full-time but we still need a part-time nanny or baby sitter... We have few questions:

1) Do we still need to have a contract of employment for the nanny/babysitter even if she helps us for few hours per day?

2) Do we need to do anything in terms of registration with the immigration authorities if the nanny is an EU citizen who is entering Switzerland?

3) Is there any requirement for us to pay taxes for the nanny/babysitters? If yes, how can we educate ourselves?

Hopefully there is someone in the forum that can help us and/or suggest from where we should start.

Many thanks in advance.

1, if regular work then yes.

2, yes. Even people from the EU need a reason to be here for more than 90 days.

3, Easier to use an agency or get a tagesmutter.

Re: Legal, Tax or other requirements to hire nannies/babysitters

There is a new website/service that takes care of most of the issues regarding tax/social security/insurance etc.

http://quitt.ch/

I haven't tried it out yet but it looks all right. They take a 8.4% commission, which doesn't seem too bad considering the hassle you would otherwise have to do it on your own.

And the Website is even in English :-)

P.S.: The service seems quite new so I'd be interested to hear of anyone who has actually used it.
