HumanR is a driven and professional service provider specialized in offering payroll solutions, exclusively to highly skilled, migrants (expats).
With an expert team of consultants and specialists, we are available on a daily basis to advise our clients, answer their questions, draw up contracts and pay salaries correctly and on time.
We offer a comprehensive one-stop-shop service in payroll solutions in the areas of immigration, wages, social security, tax, relocation and applications for the 30% ruling. We are also transparent about our rates, so you always know where you stand.
The following overview gives you a clear picture of our working method, from the moment we come into contact with a customer to placing a highly skilled migrant on our payroll.
1. Negotiation Details
Desired start date, contract duration, salary, number of vacation days, other conditions.
2. Provide Required Information & Documents
I.e. copy passport of potential employee, CV, diplomas, etc.
3. Signing of Contracts
Secondment agreement with client & employment agreement with potential employee.
4. Submitting Application
We apply for a residence permit with the IND through one of our experienced legal partners. They supervise the process and ensure that the outcome is realized as successfully as possible.
5. Waiting for Approval
Usually, the IND takes about 2-4 weeks to assess the application, possibly request for additional information and then make a decision.
6. Arrival in the Netherlands
After collecting the entry visa (MVV) from the Dutch embassy / consulate, the highly skilled migrant can fly to the Netherlands.
Shortly after arrival, the highly skilled migrant visits an Expat Center or IND office to collect his/her residence permit and then registers with the municipality (BSN registration).
8. Housing and Other Matters
Housing is usually arranged in advance by the customer, HumanR or the highly skilled migrants themselves. Practical matters such as opening a bank account and health insurance can be arranged during this phase.
9. Starting Work
The highly skilled migrant can now work for the customer and receives his salary from HumanR at the end of each month. At the same time, HumanR invoices its customer for every salary month.
10. Applying for 30% Ruling
After employment commences, the 30% ruling can now officially be applied for with the Dutch Tax Authorities (a.k.a. Belastingdienst).
With only 2 employees and one customer, we started our activities in 2008
We have worked together with more than 300 highly skilled professionals
Starting with IT, we have rapidly grown in other sectors include Finance, Engineering & Healthcare
The IND has never rejected a single case of ours
As a startup we had no idea of the specific challenges we were going to face when we started working with developers from abroad. After starting with a developer from India we quickly ran into problems with the rules and regulations concerning expats, residency and immigration in general. A friend recommended HumanR and after that thinks looked up very quickly. HumanR provided us with advice even though we were no client with them at the time. They helped us by providing information on residency permits and pointed us to a lawyer that helped us correct the situation where we hired someone whom we weren’t allowed to hire according to immigration laws. Together with HumanR we came up with a satisfactory solution for all parties involved, including the expat and we were very happy with the flexibility HumanR showed in transferring the wrongly forged contract to their payroll. It helped a lot that HumanR has a lot of experience in these matters. It speaks for itself that from that point onward HumanR became our primary point of contact for advice and for payrolling of people from various countries (Bangladesh, India, Kosovo). As a reliable partner HumanR takes away all of the hassle surrounding these hires so we as a company can focus on what is important to us, creating great software!
HumanR helped us out when we were in a dire situation. We had found the perfect candidate from India but could not hire him directly because we found out at the same time we needed to be a recognized sponsor for the Dutch immigration office. We went ahead with applying to become a recognized sponsor immediately but this would take months to be approved. HumanR helped us estimate how long approximately it would take to be approved and offered us a really good deal to bridge the gap by hiring our candidate through them temporarily. Compared to quotes we requested from competitors, HumanR was by far the cheapest and they really helped us think through the process. They were flexible, provided an introduction to a great immigration lawyer, and communication was always good. Would recommend to anyone!
My name is Saif Ahmed Khan and I was born and raised in Bhopal, India where I completed my LLB and postgraduate studies in Human Resource Management. I also have a Masters degree in Business and Corporate Law from Erasmus University Rotterdam, The Netherlands. Thanks to HumanR, I’m presently working as an assistant account manager legal in a Dutch trust company based in Amsterdam.I came into contact with HumanR in 2008, which provides a platform in the corporate world in the Netherlands. After 3-4 months of being in contact with them they e-mailed me that an international trust company was searching for an Indian corporate lawyer and whether I would be interested in working there. I found the job profile matching and challenging and finally after vigorous rounds of interviews and hard work I succeeded in getting a dream job in Amsterdam. Starting from rounds of interviews via videoconference until arrival and settlement in the Netherlands, HumanR played a crucial role. Today, I would like to extend my heartfelt thanks to HumanR for making me a part of this amazing country. During different rounds of interaction with them, they made an honest effort in conveying the positive aspects of relocation in Netherlands. Meanwhile, they also ensured to make me acquainted with the hard side of the professional life, which obviously has been minor.
Now after working more than a year and being a part of Dutch society and culture I just can remember those old days. My dream came true only because of HumanR and I salute them for providing me a platform to show the world my legal knowledge and management skills as well as for making me a bridge between the Dutch and Indian business fraternity.
Hi, my name is Dr. Lokesh K. Raturi from the Art of Living international organization. Being an Ayurvedic doctor and trainer I have been to Europe many times as a visitor for seminars and public talks on Ayurveda. I always liked visiting the Netherlands because of it being a multicultural and social society with great interest in Ayurveda.
Through HumanR I was able to make a milestone step to establish myself as an Ayurvedic practitioner so that I can spread my teachings through the Art of Living in the Netherlands. I appreciate and I am amazed by the quality of service, care, responsibility and friendly behaviour I received from HumanR. I feel honoured to be a part of HumanR for the 8 months worked with them. I give my gratitude, love and regards to all at HumanR and wish them all the success in future for such a great service to the country Netherlands.
I’m Abhinit Ravi from India working at a Dutch ICT company in Utrecht, The Netherlands.
I did my schooling from DeNobili School and went on to do my Engineering from the University of Delhi. Once done with my studies, I started working with a telecommunications company before joining one of India’s leading IT-services giants. After working for four years, I was all set to move to the US, when I got in touch with HumanR. The first thing that striked me about HumanR, was their straight forward communication, leaving nothing ambiguous. I was so impressed that I dropped my US plans and decided to join HumanR in Netherlands. Off course I had to go through quite a few rounds of interviews not only with HumanR, but also with their ICT customer.Then came the real problem of moving to a different country and more importantly a culture that I was completely unfamiliar with. I had no friends, no place to stay and a lot of paper work that was in a language unknown to me. I must thank HumanR for the transitions, training and taking care of all these issues, right from housing, insurance to tax declarations. So in the mean time I could completely concentrate on my professional challenges. Having worked for HumanR for two years I then moved to their ICT customer’s employment, where I have been working since. And now I have to do all these tasks such as taxes, etc. on my own, and I realize and appreciate even more what a great help HumanR was. And the best part is even now whenever I face any issues, I still can call/mail HumanR for their assistance.
I would like to thank HumanR for all their support and guidance in making this endeavor successful.
Holland! A dream comes true to visit a foreign country. I had little idea of The Netherlands and its official language Dutch. Going abroad, made me anxious but at the same time I was keen to meet new people, a different culture and lifestyle. This is my first travel outside India and working in a new country made me more nervous.
Our journey from Mumbai to Amsterdam was tiring but the excitement to witness new soil, kept us upbeat. We were taken to our house where we unpacked our luggage and relaxed for the rest of the day.The second day, we had an orientation section and we were introduced with our Dutch colleagues in the AMC. In the evening, we were provided with new mobile phones. We were very happy. The third day, we went to the Amsterdam Expat Center where we completed our registration formalities and received our work permits. It was one of the happiest moments of my life. Later, HumanR made us familiar with local markets and fixed an appointment with the house doctor and dentist.
During our training and cross culture, we visited several places like Madurodam, Scheveningen beach, Dam square, etc. We enjoyed a canal tour in Amsterdam too. We also ate Dutch pancakes at the seaside, and went bowling. What fun it was to! It is still fresh in my memory.
I would like to thank HumanR for making us comfortable in a foreign country and understanding our needs very well. They helped us in getting acquainted with Dutch culture. They made our registration processes very smooth by making all prior appointments and guiding us throughout.
