Example case: Deloitte
Deloitte supports its employees with flexible childcare, because it sees the importance and necessity of a good work-life balance for its employees. Through Charly Cares Business, Deloitte structurally offers babysitting hours to its employees.
Director Performance & Rewards Deloitte:
“Employees of Deloitte can make use of Charly Cares, either with their own babysitter or with a Charly Cares babysitter. During the lockdown, we initially started with this solution and now we offer it structurally as an extra fringe benefit. This solution offers our employees and Deloitte as an organisation the flexibility that fits the current way of working.”
What does a business babysitter cost?
- If you have sufficient space under the WKR discretionary scope, you will pay the 'regular' fee. For example: babysitter's hourly rate of €6,- means €6,- per hour for your organisation.
- If you have insufficient space, you will pay an 80% final levy over the excess paid. The organisation pays this to the tax authorities at the end of the year. For example: babysitter's hourly rate is €6,- + 80% final levy means €10,80 per hour for your organisation.
Frequently asked questions
Will the babysitting credit for my employees be considered wages?
If there is room under the WKR (work-related costs scheme) and if the conditions for using the WKR are met, then you can designate it as ‘eindheffingsloon’. As a result, you will be able to reimburse your employees tax-free and the babysitting credit will potentially not be considered wages. If there is no room under the WKR, then the babysitting credit could be considered (extra) wages and the usual wage costs will have to be paid. We advise that you check with your financial department, or with an external administrator or tax specialist.
Do my employees need a Charly Cares membership?
Before your employees can book a Babysitting Angel, they need a membership. They can choose between 3 different memberships: basic, flexible, and premium. Based on their babysitting needs, they pick the membership that fits them the best.
Is Charly Cares Business available everywhere in the Netherlands?
Yes! As an employer, you can support every employee with a company babysitter. Charly Cares is active in 57 places across the Netherlands. Employees who do not live in any of those places can easily add their current babysitter to our platform.
