All in one

Everything you need to grow and thrive.

Gusto makes church payroll services easy for institutions by bringing together all the tools you need on one modern system. Manage the entire employee lifecycle—from onboarding new hires to providing benefits like retirement. Integrations with the 401(k) providers you already use ensure that your HR, IRS, and 401(k) data is in sync. Ask how you can earn up to $16,500 in tax credits over the plan’s first three years.


Empower your people.

New hires love having access to their information without needing to ask HR. Our modern, easy-to-use design means they’ll have no trouble logging in, finding the information they need, making updates, changing 401(k) contributions, discovering tool integrations, and more. Skip the paperwork (and outsmart the IRS) with self-onboarding features, e-signatures, online training, and automatic state tax registration.

Dedicated support

Help when you’re in need.

Gusto’s software easily adapts when your team changes or your congregation grows. We provide continuing guidance on church payroll services, church accounting, bookkeeping, and HR. Enjoy free access to our online resources, proactive compliance alerts, and our best-in-class support team, which is just a call, chat, or email away. Depending on your tier, we also provide CSMs and HR professionals who understand your specific needs.

Great for contractors

Combine W-2s, 1099s, and any other tax forms.

Whether they’re local, remote, or even international, you can manage contractors just as easily as W-2 employees. They can self-onboard and check their IRS information on our online system, and they’ll appreciate getting our automatic alerts when you’ve sent their paycheck or their direct deposit hits their bank account. Gusto automatically fills income tax forms and calculates payroll taxes, so nothing is overlooked.
