Whatever You Do, Do it With Gusto!

As your ecommerce business grows, at some point you will most likely find yourself at that place where you’re ready (and able!) to expand your team. That’s great news because it means you are seeing results from your hard work and enjoying the success you deserve. If you’ve implemented Profit First in your business, you’ve likely arrived at this juncture sooner than you would have otherwise because Profit First puts the processes into place to help you experience this growth. If this is where you’re finding yourself now, then congratulate yourself for being committed to your business and your profitability!

As with most things, along with the good there are usually a few challenges to work through. Expanding your team, whether it’s one person or a dozen, means you now need to think about payroll and associated taxes, W2s, 1099s, benefits, and a variety of other things that come with having a team on board. But not to worry; bookskeep has a solution for you—Gusto! The bookskeep team uses Gusto on a daily basis with our clients and as an integral tool for our internal management as well.

At first glance, Gusto is a payroll service with all the features you need to manage your employees or contractors and ease your stress along the way. This comprehensive yet user-friendly software can help put your worries aside when it comes to tasks such as payroll taxes, legal compliance reporting, and required filings.

A few of Gusto’s payroll and employee-related features include:

  • Employee onboarding – Provides access easy and secure onboarding forms.
  • All Payroll Tax Filings – Automatically files and pays payroll taxes at the federal, state, and local levels.
  • W2s and 1099s – Automatically generates required forms that can be easily downloaded.
