Batmaid Takes Care of All the Paperwork
After deciding to go ahead with Batmaid you simply need to sign the Batmaid “Trust Mandate” authorising them to proceed with the declaration of your employee and payment of social security contributions.
Batmaid Undertakes the Following Paperwork on your behalf:
All the boring paperwork is completed by Batmaid. They complete the legal declaration to the AHV, they pay the cleaner and they pay all the AHV/IV/EO (AVS/AI/APG) social security contributions depending on the number of hours worked.
In addition they deal with the “withholding tax” issues, they pay the accident insurance and they issue the monthly pay slips and annual wage payroll statements as well as the contract of employment between you and your selected Batmaid cleaner.
How Batmaid Select Their Cleaners
After an initial online application to check they meet all the important criteria, all Batmaid cleaners are interviewed to ensure they have the correct legal papers such as copies of police records, a valid work permit along references and background checks. Once the cleaner is successful they are then tested by the special Batmaid Team to ensure they meet Batmaid’s high cleaning and quality standards.
Only candidates who meet all these rigorous standards can become a “Batmaid”. The Batmaid cleaners then indicate on the platform their availability and where the areas in which they would like to work. The booking system makes it easy both for the cleaner and the client to arrange the most suitable times and frequencies.
