5 Reasons You Should Switch to Gusto in 2021

At long last, 2020, the year that would never end, has finally come to an end. And with it come your 2021 New Year’s resolutions.

While we all aspire to shaping up and losing “The Quarantine 15“, getting organized, and generally being better with money, this year I’m recommending an unconventional but still life-changing resolution:

Switch to Gusto for your payroll needs. Like, now.

Whether you’re a small or large business, early-stage or about to IPO startup, LLC or S Corp, or anything in-between, there’s never a better time to hop on the Gusto freight train than right now.

Here’s why you should make the switch as soon as possible:

1. Switching payroll at the beginning of the year is the best time to do it.

If you’ve ever made a payroll or accounting software switch in the middle of the year, you know what a pain it is to have to combine reports from both services when filing taxes and doing your end-of-year accounting.

Switching to Gusto for a 1/1/21 start will allow you to close out your 2020 payroll with a complete data set, and start 2021 with a whole new reporting set.

It only takes about 30 minutes and compared to the hours it’s going to take you to make the change later, which, to me, is a no brainer. I even have a video where I walk you through it on my YouTube channel:

So fresh. So clean.

(Side note: Even if you can’t make 12/31, the technical end of the year, if do move to Gusto before you run your first payroll in 2021, you should still have a nice clean 2021 ledger.)

2. Gusto is giving you $100 to switch now.

Yea that’s right, free money. Like some kinda of author and infomercial star Matthew Lesko, but for payroll instead of goverment grants.

Sign up for Gusto now, using this link, and you’ll get a $100 visa gift card!

3. Gusto is one of the most competitively priced options out there.

Even if they weren’t giving you $100 to try it, Gusto is priced at $39 plus $6 per employee, per month (for the average tier, which I use for my clients).

That’s for managing all of your payroll taxes, forms and filings.

They also have the “Autopilot” feature which will run your payroll automatically without you having to log in.

4. Gusto offers a full suite of HR services to help run your business.

Gusto is much more than payroll software. They will also help you acquire and also manage your worker’s compensation insurance, health and dental benefits, retirement plans, and much more.

Do you have contractors? Gusto can help with that.

Confused by the terms and tax implications of your PPP loan? Gusto can help with that.

Point is, it’s pretty much the closest thing to automated HR and payroll out there, so unless you just love doing all those things yourself, I’d recommend talking to them about doing it for you next year.

5. They’re giving you $100 to try it.

Did I mention this already? I did? Well, it’s a total steal for a solo-preneur, and certainly nothing to scoff at for a bigger company.

Whether you set it up yourself, use their 24/7 dedicated support, or follow along with my tutorial on how to get rolling, if signing up for Gusto is the only thing you do this week, it’ll be a total win.

So, just use this link to get your $100 off and sign up today.
