Hi. I am employing a childminder in my home for the first time and have a few general queries: 1. I understand I have to register as employer and pay PRSI. Are there any other costs associated with being an employer? 2. How do you generate payslips - do I need to get a payroll software package for one employee or is it easy to just work out taxes on excel and do payslips another way? Trying to keep costs to a minimum so any advice appreciated.
