  • I like that Gusto handles all of the federal, state, and local tax withholdings and payments. This really is the basics of a payroll system, but I'm a small firm, yet I pay employees across 4 different states. Gusto makes it easy.
  • Gusto integrates with QuickBooks Online, and that's key for me. Once I approve a payroll, there's nothing else I need to do to keep my bookkeeper happy. Before Gusto, I had to make manual entries, and that was a pain and just busy work in hindsight.
  • Gusto is natively online. I can manage employees and payroll from anywhere with an internet connect, even my phone.
