Why Charly Cares Business?

  • Employer of the future

    With a business babysitter, you will support your employees when it is most necessary. When things are well-organized at home, everyone profits. The children, the working parents, and therefore the whole company.

  • Productivity, happiness at work & stress relief

    Research shows that a business babysitter results in increased productivity and happiness at work, and a reduction in stress. While an experienced babysitter takes over the care of the children, the employee can focus on work-related matters without being disturbed.

  • Maximum flexibility and quality via an innovative platform

    A last minute babysitter or a fixed after-school babysitter: Charly Cares offers personally checked Babysitting Angels for any time. Thanks to a transparent rating system, Angel insurance, and 24/7 Customer Care, the parent is completely unburdened.

Het Financieele Dagblad about a business babysitter through Charly Cares

The FD writes an extensive article about the challenging combination of parenthood and an ambitious career. More and more employers offer support in the form of a babysitter via Charly Cares. Enter your email address below and we will send the article to you (please note: article is in Dutch).

This creates the following challenges for the employee:

  • "I cannot find childcare for all days, shall I (temporarily) go back in hours to take care of the children?"

  • "I came back from maternity leave, but can't go back to my original contract hours."

  • "I work two days at home with the children to fill in the gaps left by childcare"

  • "I necessarily call in sick or take time off during study days."

Frequently asked questions

How can I start with Charly Cares Business?

Schedule a meet & greet with one of our colleagues by entering your contactdetails in the form below. During this demo we will answer all your questions and explain the next steps.

Is Charly Cares Business available everywhere throughout the Netherlands?

Yes! As an employer, you can support any employee in the Netherlands with a company babysitter. Charly Cares is available throughout the Netherlands. In many regions, we offer a large, active babysitting network (primarily in the Randstad and Brabant regions). Does an employee live in a different region? They can easily add their own babysitter to our platform and thus make use of the business services.

My employees already have a membership with Charly Cares, can they continue using their current account?

Your employees can activate their business account within their personal account.
Step 1: Activate your business account. Go to the menu, select 'Profile,' and open your business account.
Step 2: Register the business email address. Enter your business email address (e.g., @charlycares.com), agree to the terms, and click on 'Activate business account.'
Step 3: Email verification with activation code. You will receive a 4-digit code on your business email. Enter the code to confirm on your business account. From now on, you can book and pay for both private and business babysitting services. You can choose whether you or your employer pays for each babysitting service.

Is the babysitting credit for my employees considered as salary?

If there is space available under the WKR (Work-Related Expense Scheme) and the conditions for using the WKR can be met, you can designate this as final tax wage. As a result, you can reimburse this untaxed for your employees and the babysitting credit may not be considered as wages. If there is no space available under the WKR, it may be that the babysitting credit is considered as (additional) wages and the usual wage costs will need to be paid on this. We recommend checking this with your financial department or externally involved accountant and tax advisor.
