Justworks Review – Forbes Advisor
Justworks makes payroll management easy for everyone in your business who needs to be paid. You can set up profiles for full-time, part-time, salaried, hourly, and contract workers, as well as vendors. They can also configure everything on their own through the self-service employee portal. You will manage ongoing payroll, while Justworks will process your workers’ W-2 and 1099 tax returns. You can set up weekly and/or bi-weekly payments or run as many off-cycle payments as needed at no additional cost.
There are two plans for Justworks and its pricing structure is simple. The amount you pay monthly depends on whether you choose the basic plan or higher and the number of employees you want to manage in the system. If you have fewer than 25 employees, you’ll pay $49 per person per month for the Basic plan and $99 per person per month for Plus. The price per employee decreases as the size of your business grows.
Both plans cover payroll, include 24/7 support, offer self-service onboarding, tax reporting, and give you access to workers’ compensation insurance, 401(k) and other advantages. The Plus plan also includes access to medical, dental, and vision insurance, Health Savings Accounts (HSA), and COBRA insurance. They also help you comply with federal and state regulations, such as harassment prevention training.
Justworks doesn’t have time tracking in its payroll and HR software, but it does offer its own app that you can integrate to sync with payroll (and your accounting software). The caveat is that the time-tracking app comes at an additional cost: Justworks Hours costs $20 to $45 per month as a base cost, plus $5 to $9 per person per month. There is no mobile app, but you can access your account on a mobile browser.
Integrations are important for payroll services, especially accounting software integrations. Justworks syncs easily with top accounting software, such as QuickBooks and Xero. Additionally, Justworks offers 24/7 support via phone, email, live chat, Slack, and SMS.
