How can we help?

Change the primary payroll administrator

If you're currently the primary payroll administrator, you can assign another admin to be the primary admin if needed. If you’re working with a Gusto Accountant Partner, firm admins can also update the primary admin on behalf of clients.

Keep in mind: once you do this you will no longer be able to add, remove, or change admins because you won't be the primary admin. The new primary payroll administrator can make changes to your company details, run payroll, process contractor payments, and view reports.
