How much tax do Au Pair host parents have to pay on au pair's wages?

Does anybody happen to know what percentage of an au pair's salary the host parents have to pay in taxes once they have registered her for an L permit with the canton?

Tax ? Or did you mean social costs and insurance ?

I'm not even sure... I guess what I mean is, if she already has full health insurance, will the family have to pay anything to the canton each month to keep her?

The tax is deducted from the salary. The employer is liable to AHV/AVS & unemployment insurance total approx 6.65 plus accident insurance.

Thank you for replying - sorry for being dense but I know nothing about taxation - so if the au pair's being paid 600 CHF per month, the family will have to pay about 40 CHF per month to the canton?

The accident insurance & non accident insurance may have a minimum premium, no idea what that would be.
