"I wanted to make sure to pay our nanny legally, but I was overwhelmed by all the requirements, and the websites I found to help with this were really expensive. I am lucky to have found Nanny Files - the monthly rate is completely affordable, and the How-To guides are very easy to follow. Plus, the payroll system is *so* easy to use."
"Nanny Files offers a great value relative to other nanny payroll services for those willing to do some of the work themselves. They provided clear step-by-step guidance to get started and now that my initial set up is complete, payroll literally takes about 5 minutes each pay period."
