anyone doing home tuition this year? The payment method has changed so where previously payment was made via the parent. now it is a direct payment into tutors account via the NTS payroll. I also work for an ETB (part time) so would need to split tax credits and am concerned that if deductions for pensions etc are made by DES and given I am a NQT on new hourly rates that 1.5 hours work just won't pay enough given preparation and travel times which must also be factored in..
I've contacted DES payroll and basically they are saying PAYE and PRSI is down to credits etc - I earn so little these will be insignificant however I am worried about other deductions making it financially unviable. I think the more NQT accept the dismal pay and woeful hours the less will be done about it!
