We take liability over your tax compliance

When working with freelancers, companies must adhere to strict tax requirements. Luckily for you, Stoke takes care of the entire process.

We’ll gather the required tax forms like W-9s and W-8BENs from your freelancers and submit annual tax reports like 1099s or IR-35 to the appropriate tax authority on your behalf.

03

Automated workforce classification audits

Stoke uses AI to analyze your relationship with freelancers based on thousands of previous classification cases. 

When a high-risk relationship is identified, an automated audit is run, generating a detailed report that contains actionable suggestions for reducing risk.
