I think people are just trying to give the OP honest advice, no one is trying to tell her to work outside of the tax system. However, the fact is that the majority of people I know who employ nannies, do pay them off the books. I was surprised to learn that this is usually at the nannies request. I have several friends who had people show up for interviews and demand this type arrangement.

To the OP, one of the things many of the upper income and upwardly mobile people parents want in a nanny is bilingual exposure for their children. This, coupled with previous experience and good references will land you a position almost immediately if you post a profile on Care.com or the like. If you do want to get paid on the books, there are plenty of families who will do so. I have friends whose employers (usually hospitals) pay for childcare as a benefit. These people must pay through payroll.

I meant which neighborhood in Barcelona? I lived there several years ago (in Exiample) and visit semi-regularly; just wanted to see how much culture shock you would experience.

in Ireland most of the nannies work outside the tax system because they wanted and the parents too, however I always demand I wanted to work legally if not I didnt accept the job.

I live in el Coll, around Vallcarca, but I am not from Barcelona, I am from Zaragoza (around 300km from Barcelona)

I lived in Dublin in the mid eighties with a student work visa. Even the legit businesses had no time for this and instead paid me in cash. I was working in the theatre.

People also have to pay for childcare on the books if they have a dependent care FSA (which shields up to $5k of income from taxes). That's offered by a fair number of mid to large employers.
