Company Onboarding

Getting Started

This guide covers the steps to fully onboard a company for Gusto Embedded Payroll, which includes passing employer (company) and employee data. A company and its employees must be fully onboarded before the end user can process payroll.

To onboard a company for payroll, key inputs include company details (e.g. legal name, EIN), location(s), bank accounts, and other information. To onboard an employee, key inputs include employee details (e.g. name, addresses), pay rates (salaried or hourly), tax withholding, and so on. In practice, company, compensations, addresses, and tax/withholding information are relatively static.

An end-to-end Company Onboarding Flow (pre-built UI) is available to capture all of the company and employee information needed for payroll. You can also modularize the Company Onboarding Flow and string together only the specific steps that you need. APIs are also available so partners have the option to use APIs, Flows, or both to fully onboard a company and its employees.
