Deel is the first payroll platform for remote teams that connects localized compliance and payments in one system of record and automates everything.
Deel has multiple benefits for both companies and contractors:
There are three types of contracts you can create on Deel:
This is an ongoing contract used to pay contractors a set amount on a weekly, bi-weekly or monthly basis. It is ideal for long term projects or an ongoing arrangement. This type of contract can be used for any work scope.
Here’s how to create a fixed contract
Pay as you go contract
This is an ongoing contract used to pay contractors based on a work time (hours or days) submitted. A client signs a contract and pays an invoice at the end of a week or month. The amount invoiced is generated based on the total time a contractor submitted. This type of contract can be used for any work scope.

This is an "one-time" contract where the client breaks down the project into milestones and assigns a rate to each of them. The money is released based on the approved work (milestone). This type of contract is used for short term projects and for any work scope.
Here’s how to create a milestone contract
Our sample contracts are tailored to local labor laws in countries of both the client and the contractor and they are legally binding. You can review all the clauses and sections before signing it by downloading a PDF version of the contract. This document can also be used to resolve any potential disputes.
Deel contracts are being polished and updated based on local laws of different countries. Although our template is generally acceptable, our aim is to cover the intricacies of each country with more local law information required to ensure you stay compliant.
You can do that from the dashboard, by selecting the three dots on the right side of the contract list.
Go to the User Settings on the left navigation bar, and edit the information details.
Yes, Deel automatically generates the invoices for each contract that is created. We use the details provided in the contract. You can download the invoice and use it for accounting, tax filing or any other purpose. Deel now integrates with QuickBooks and Xero.
If you want to upload your own invoice, you can do that as well. Go the Invoices tab and click on the three dots to upload your own invoice.
We strive to offer a unique service, where clients and contracts can select from a variety of payment methods.
Clients can pay via ACH, wire transfers, credit cards, SEPA and BACS Direct Debit.
Contractors can receive or withdraw money with one of 15+ methods such as PayPal, Payoneer, bank transfer (SWIFT or local), Revolut, Transferwise, and other digital wallets.
Deel has one of the lowest fees in the industry. We charge the client based on the number of active contracts within a month. For details, take a look at Deel pricing page.
Contractors do not pay for Deel!
Please note that Deel fee does not cover the transfer fees that some payment methods charge. Fees are always displayed on the payment/withdrawal screen.
We are always here to help you! The fastest way to get in touch is via the live chat feature on the bottom right. If you prefer email, reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Yes, you can create Deel teams. For more information, check setting up Teams tutorial.
In general, you need to have a contract and invoices for each of your contractors. In addition to that, you can request the contractor to upload compliance documents required in their own country (such as registration confirmation, work permits, etc.)
Deel is available in all countries except those prohibited by law and those considered extreme risk.
Please check the answer above about compliance and documentation.
For the US companies:
When using Deel, we collect all the necessary information to generate relevant tax forms for you. W-9, W-8BEN, W-8BENE, and 1099 are all being generated on Deel. You are responsible for the withholding. When a tax season comes, you will be able to generate the Forms and file 1099 Forms directly via Deel to the IRS, thanks to our tax partners.
For international companies:
We are working through the documentation requirements for different countries and improving our contract samples. If you have a specific inquiry, please email us at email@example.com.
When you create a contract, you will be asked about the frequency and the date of the first payment.
You can read more about the payment cycles here.
If you fail to collect a W-9 form from your contractor and do not issue the required 1099-Misc form, the IRS will hold you responsible for not withholding 28% tax on the amount paid and assess penalties for not issuing the required form. The penalties are $260 for each failure to file and an additional $260 for each failure to issue a required 1099 Form. The IRS is very strict about 1099 Forms and in addition to the potential penalties for not filing, they can/will deny the deduction for that expense under audit. It is strongly recommended that you have a W-9 from all contractors you do business with.
You can pay your contractors in a single click. Go to your dashboard and select the Pay all button. For more information, check our mass pay tutorial.
Yes, clients can edit existing contracts. Check this tutorial for more information. The edited contract will need to be re-signed by both parties to take effect. Keep in mind you need to process all outstanding payments before amending a contract.
Yes, when you create a contract you can select to upload your own contract. We will add an amendment to the sample contract that both parties will sign.
Yes, you can. You can add any documents such as policies, annexes, etc. Here's how.

You can access your balance from the dashboard. Once there is money on your balance, press the Withdraw button and follow the process. For more information, check withdrawal tutorial.
All transaction costs/fees are determined and charged by the payment service providers. You are responsible to cover the fee every time you withdraw the money from Deel balance. You will always see the fee when you click on withdraw (before you confirm).
Deel does not provide a service for the exchange of completed work. Clients and contractors should agree on communication channels before starting the project.
This depends on the payment method you selected. Please check the respective payment method website for more details. In general, this is the estimated time it takes for the money to be cleared:
- PayPal: end of the day
- Bank transfer via SWIFT: 2-3 business days
- Local bank transfer: up to 1 business day
Note that most payment providers, especially banks do not process payments on the weekends and public holidays.
Yes, you can. We introduced Withdraw Early feature for our users. You can learn more about it here.
We encourage our clients and contractors to try and settle conflicts between themselves. Deel does not provide a Resolution Center and does not mediate any disputes.
We know that the struggle is real when trying to get paid for work that is completed. Deel was built on the premise to ensure trust and safety between clients and contractors. By breaking down the project into tasks in Milestone contracts, we are providing a way to mitigate large losses for both parties.
When a tax season comes, you will be able to generate and collect all the 1099 forms and file them directly via Deel to the IRS thanks to our tax partners. You can manage your tax forms under the Taxes tab.
Yes, you can. When you click on the button Withdraw, you can choose the amount you want to withdraw. You can check this tutorial for more information.
You can add your withdrawal method from the User Settings, under General tab.
We do our best to provide you with the best payment experience, but we cannot control all the factors.
Sometimes it can happen that the client hasn't paid on time. You will see that in the contract as payment overdue.
If you have a question about the status of your payment, reach out to us via the website chat.
