Automated payroll and taxes

Outsource your projects with ease.

Gusto lets contractors self-onboard online so they can get to work quickly. And they’ll appreciate getting our automatic payday emails and 1099-NEC forms where required. Meanwhile, you can rest easy knowing that your tax forms are automated, as well as all the calculations involved. So you don’t have to worry about forgotten signatures, missing forms, or a misplaced zero.

Transparent pricing

Get what you pay for, and more.

Every Gusto plan includes contractor payments for the same per-person fee as your employees. You get perks like unlimited payments, direct deposit, tax filing, and pay stubs with no extra fees to set up or file 1099s. We even have a Contractor Only plan for businesses without W-2 employees. Plus we don’t charge you contractors in months you don’t pay them.

Flexible growth

Scale your business without the growing pains.

Success is all about adapting to change. As you succeed and your team expands, Gusto adjusts to your needs. You can onboard and pay more contractors and full-time employees, and add benefits like health insurance. Oh, and those additional paychecks, tax forms, and new hire reports are all automated, so it can be a smooth ride to the top.
