Further Questions?

quitt is aimed at private employers of domestic help of any kind with a salary of max. 520 euros per month or 6.240 euros per year. This type of employment is called minijob. Your domestic helper may earn a total of max. 520 euros per month for all minijobs together, unless she/he has a main job that is subject to insurance, in which case she/he may have one minijob with a salary of up to 520 euros.

Soon we will extend our quitt service to all domestic helpers, that means in the area of Midijobs, regardless of their earnings.

An official employment relationship is not only required by law, but also brings many advantages for employers.
You as an employer create a legal and fair working relationship with your domestic helper, have tax advantages, are covered in case of a work accident, and enjoy a right to reimbursement for absences due to illness or pregnancy thanks to the employers’ insurance.
Your domestic helper, on the other hand, contributes to society, has a right to paid leave and social, pension, health, and accident insurances.
Furthermore, both you and your employee may be subject to high financial penalties and claims of social security contributions, either due to a work accident or via a random control of customs duty in Germany.

The roles must include household-related activities that are usually performed by individuals in the household. These are usually activities such as cleaning, child or elderly care, shopping, gardening, or pet sitting.

For the employment of a domestic helper in the private household, you will receive 20% (max. 42.50 euros per month or 510 euros per year) of the total employer costs back during your tax return. This tax benefit can sometimes be even higher than the employer costs you pay.
2/3 of the childcare costs (max. 4.000 euros per child) up to the age of 14 can be deducted from your tax declaration as a special expense.Please note that you can either claim back 20% of the total employer costs for household activities or 2/3 of the childcare costs for the same employee.
quitt provides the necessary documents for you to apply for a tax refund.
