Collective Payroll Overview
Updated over a week ago



Collective Payroll is live and rolling out in phases to our members. If you are currently onboarding, your Onboarding Accountant will get you set up. If you've completed onboarding, stay tuned for an email to help you migrate. Click here for more information for migrating members. Collective Payroll lets you run Gusto powered payroll from within your Collective Member Dashboard. The most common features from the Gusto platform are now live within the Collective platform. All other features can still be completed from your Gusto dashboard. Changes and actions made in Collective Payroll are synced with Gusto and vice versa.
