Brazil

also treats contractors differently than full-time employees, so misclassifying a contractor could lead to fines. Deel lets you hire employees in

A contracting life-changer!

"

This has by far the singular tool that made my contracting work amazing. It used to be that contract management and payouts was a nightmare — Deel makes everything so easy especially with its Transferwise integration. Everyone gets paid on time and kept happy. I also contacted their support a couple of times for some small questions and they’ve been nothing short of amazing. If you’re a contractor or someone who hires contractors then definitely give Deel a go.
