Our wage cost calculator for private households is available for all types of employment and professions in private households, from nanny to cleaning help and gardener.

For mini-jobs, we recommend our “simple” calculator, as far less information is required for an accurate calculation.

For employments subject to social security contributions, i.e. midijobs or part-time or full-time jobs, we recommend our complex salary calculator, so you can calculate employer costs and net wages more precisely.

How much does it cost to employ a private domestic helper or private childcare?

The employer costs for private employers vary depending on the form of employment. While the employment of a mini-jobber in a private household is just under 15% of the gross salary, the employer costs for a midi-job are between 20% and 28% of the gross salary. For part-time or full-time employment, costs of about 20% are to be expected. The total employer costs are tax deductible for all forms of employment.

Furthermore, factors such as the status of the employee, whether he or she is a pensioner or a student, or the employee’s health insurance, have an influence on the costs of private employment relationships.
