Add a contractor manually
You can begin in your Dashboard under "My Team", or in Workers, by clicking +Hire Worker.
Click Add a contractor.
Enter the business name of the contractor.
Contractors are essentially their own business or company, performing work for your company. But not all contractors are taxed the same. If the contractor's is an individual, you'll need their Social Security Number (SSN). If they are a corporation, partnership, trust, or LLC, you'll use their Federal Employer Identification Number (FEIN).
Personal and contact information
Enter the contractor's name, birthday, gender, phone number(s), home address (not business address), and emergency contact information.
