How 1099 subcontractors and W2 employees can use SalesRabbit
Most business owners know that there are different tax statuses for their employees. W2 employees and independent 1099 subcontractors have different requirements and limits that their employer can impose. Although 1099 subcontractors are more independent and don’t follow the same rules as W2 employees, we want to show you how SalesRabbit can be useful for all your reps regardless of tax status.
What’s the Difference Between 1099 and W2?
1099 and W2s are the different tax forms used to deduct payroll taxes on different types of employees. 1099 employees are self-employed independent contractors. A W2 employee receives a regular wage and employee benefits. The employer withholds income taxes from the employee’s paycheck and has a significant degree of control over the employee’s work. Generally, hiring W2 employees is more expensive but 1099 subcontractors are more freelanced and don’t have to follow all the same rules as W2 employees. Since 1099 subcontractors are business owners themselves, they have contracts outlining what they’ll do for your company and how.
Can You Require Your 1099 Reps to Use SalesRabbit?
You may think that SalesRabbit can’t be used with 1099 subcontractors because they don’t have to follow certain hours, days, etc. but even if your team is mostly subcontractors, SalesRabbit is still useful. We help with territory management, location tracking, and our digital forms and contracts will make any of your reps successful door-to-door. Because 1099 subcontractors have a contract with your company, you can detail the resources and methods that they need to track their sales. Although you cannot stipulate specific times and days that 1099 employees need to work, you can still detail out the methods that they need to close deals, making SalesRabbit the hub of everything a sales rep does in the field.
