Not impressed

The initial setup with Gusto was easy. But Gusto's interface is clunky and non-intuitive, and... We do our payroll quarterly, which Gusto has no option for. So not only are we charged in months where we have no payroll, but I get endless nagging reminders that I am late running payroll. Gusto remits our state payroll taxes, but it doesn't file the state tax reports, despite claiming it did so, repeatedly. I have to file those myself every time. The bill transactions that import into Xero don't match the bank transactions, so I have to redo those for every payroll.

I have been a customer with Gusto for several years now. We decided to change our company tax structure and had to get a new FEIN. Their system won't allow you to change your FEIN, so you have to start a whole new account. I've been trying for 3 months now to get a new account set up and going with little progress or success. They have been very hard to work with during this process and we are going to be switching providers.

@Michael Wow no kidding! I noticed how many happened on Aug 10th, as if that was a day that workers, family or friends were instructed to write a 5 star review. I'd really like to use Xero payroll, but some of the limitations are concerning. However, after reading reviews of Gusto/ZP (elsewhere of course!), I certainly can't see taking the risk to have the taxes and filings lost, sent late, or messed up. I can't believe I couldn't come here to see what Xero users are saying and trust the reviews, as those August reviews are hard to believe as genuine. In fact, many of those Aug reviews are by users where that was the only activity, and while that might not indicate anything on its own, I am finding it all fishy.
