How can we help?

International employees and contractors

Gusto doesn't support employees or contractors living in U.S. territories or internationally. Gusto only supports employees and contractors with the following criteria:

Employees

  • Valid SSN
    • Employees must have a SSN. If you enter an ITIN, or otherwise invalid number, this may impact our ability to file W-2's and other payroll tax returns successfully.
  • Work address in the US
  • Bank account in the US if being paid through direct deposit

Contractors

  • Valid SSN or ITIN (for an individual), or EIN (for a business)
  • Work address in the US if Gusto is generating a 1099-MISC at year end
  • Bank account in the US if being paid through direct deposit
  • No withholding or back-up withholding, if required for the contractor
