amounts for the child minder to BlueUmbrella As the child minders work on a per hour basis the. hours submitted to BlueUmbrella can essentially only be forwarded on the last day of each month. This procedure is done on the personal page of the parents my time sheets by the last day of each. month This provides BlueUmbrella with the required information on the hours as well as the amounts. which have to be transferred to the child minder s bank account BlueUmbrella will gather this. information on the first day of the month and authorize payment to their accounts by the 3 of the new. Page 6 of 9,BlueUmbrella Newsletter April 2009, 5 BlueUmbrella launches our brand new Logo and Look. BlueUmbrella is continuously developing new services to support international families living or. planning to live in the Netherlands As we start to offer more service beyond childcare we feel that our. brand needs to be refreshed to reflect the changes we are implementing. In the last week of April 2009 we will reveal our new Logo and Face to our current and new parents. We trust that you will also become familiar with our brand new look and hopefully we will be able to. reach more international parents in our efforts to welcome you in your new country BlueUmbrella. continues to simplify your childcare matters and live up to our mission to be the trusted partner for. international families,6 New Service for PayRoll customers. BlueUmbrella has worked extensively to accommodate international families in finding suitable. solutions for their specific child care situation Some parents choose to have their children attend a. cr che other parents choose to make use of a child minder in their homes and many parents also. choose to employ a nanny domestic servant The last mentioned scenario where a family has a live. in nanny or domestic servant is a complicated arrangement where the parent essentially has to. become an employer This brings about an enormous amount of legal required efforts in order to. accommodate the employment procedure according to Dutch legal specifications. BlueUmbrella has deliberated with legal advisors and the Dutch Tax Office to see how we could. potentially make this a more uncomplicated process for our families For this reason we have. introduced a new method to administer the PayRoll procedure In the future BlueUmbrella will take. the role as the employer of the nanny domestic servant on behalf of the parent and in doing this we. will take away the responsibility from the parent in the role as employer. Parents who have questions about this new service and how it will work in each family please contact. our colleagues who will be more than happy to assist with information. 7 Parents searching for Cr ches or Schools, Being an international in a foreign country can be difficult at the best of time Add language cultureand. childcare into the mix and you may feel overwhelmed BlueUmbrella knows what you need to know. about the Dutch childcare system to get you headed in the right direction.
