It's one of the best international payroll platforms out there. Specifically, it is very good for remote companies that are hiring across the globe. It allows us to be legally compliant in all jurisdictions, pay in different currencies, and offers convenient withdrawal methods for all of our contractors.Deel's integrations also shine as we can keep our accounting running smoothly with little effort.

Gusto would be ideal and perfect for smaller scale businesses and those who don’t have time to develop and fuss over payroll or other major admin issues. For a high number of employees though or much bigger businesses, Gusto might not be robust enough for their needs and for the complexities.

Cons

Gusto

  • One issue that we've run into with Gusto are some limitations around certain kinds of withholdings from contractor pay. We've had to employ some manual work arounds.
  • When we switched from semi-monthly to an every 2 week payroll, we experienced an issue with Gusto where the payroll days are slightly out of sync. This is another minor issue that we manually work around.

While Gusto does have a few flaws on the whole it is a very user-friendly software that does a great job of making a very complicated and mundane task quite easy and it is also very cost-effective. But I find that it is not a great fit for everyone and there have been a few mistakes in the payroll tax filings that have caused me and my clients some concern

The UI is clean and simple. It's incredibly easy to find what you need to find, and if you can't, a quick search of their help files will direct you where you need to go about 90% of the time. For that last 10%, a support e-mail will result in a quick answer. Almost any time I try to do something new I haven't done before with Gusto, I can do it in a few minutes.

In rare times that we had to reach out to support they are fast and friendly and always eager to assist. Says a lot of software when you do not have to reach out to support very often. Quick and easy access to support channels makes it pain-free when you do encounter an issue.

I didn't review too many other platforms, but Deel stood out completely as it's globally compliant, automates contracts, and provides up to date withdrawal methods such as Coinbase.

The nature of my business is software development so naturally I was after a way to address this tedious task with some type of automation. Gusto was actually recommended by another tool I use (FreshBooks). After reviewing what it offered and having used Utilipro at work, I didn't look much further. The integration to my accounting tool was a good start and knowing everything was done electronically and could make my entire company tax filing simple made my decisions pretty swift.

Return on Investment

Deel

  • Very positive, has saved me days of legal and admin work.
  • Made us globally compliant and has allowed us to hire in all jurisdictions without having to worry about legal implications.
  • Allows us to scale the company easily, hire from all over the world, and provide a fast and easy solution for payments.
  • Contractors are also extremely happy with Deel as they receive the payment quickly, are [able] to submit expenses easily, and it's all automated.

  • It seems like Gusto helps our management team easily track and manage payroll.
  • It cuts down on our HR team having to send us various documents that we may need. We can now just login to Gusto to get those.
  • Gusto's email surveys are a great way for our management team to collect employee feedback to improve the culture and management of the company.
