  • Paying new contractors - Simply include new contractors in your batch; we'll create their record and send their invitation to register and accept their first payment.
  • Itemized payments - Multiple rows with the same contractor will be consolidated down to a single itemized payment.
  • Reimbursements - Mark payments and line items as reimbursement.

What if I have W-2 employees?

It’s a good idea to manage your contractor workforce and employee workforce separately to keep the lines clear for the IRS. Plus traditional payroll systems handle contractor payments as an “Oh yeah, we can do those too." Those systems aren’t designed with your independent contractors in mind. Gig Wage is. We’ll happily recommend someone to handle your W-2 employees.

Can historical payment info be imported into the app for year-end filing if a business has paid contractors outside of Gig Wage?

When it's time for tax season, Gig Wage will create a 1099 that's auto-filled with your contractor's information and payment history. If you need to add any payments made outside of Gig Wage, there's a field on the 1099 to add those as a lump sum.
