Liquid makes me feel confident that my contracts are compliant and helps me make sure all the i's are dotted and the t's are crossed.
Dr. Rupa Wong,

When we started our new business, I needed a way to onboard contracts fast. Liquid made it easy to get my team going and made me feel confident I had the right paperwork in place.
I honestly can't imagine having a freelancer management experience better than the one we've been having with Liquid.

Cash Flow Visibility

All your to-dos are at the top of your dashboard when you log in. We always show and remind you of what's the most important via dashboard and emails so you are never scrambling.
Accounting Field Syncs
We make it easy to tag your vendors, orders, and invoices with the proper accounting fields, such as account, client, projects, jobs, and departments. This data is sent with your invoices and payments to your accounting platform.
Accounting Ready Accruals
Because we have agreements in the same platform as invoice payments, we can provide you information on expenses spent but not invoiced yet for your monthly accruals.
The One Stop Shop for All Your Needs
Everything you need to work with your global team of vendors, contractors, and partners
Are you an EOR (employer-of-record)?No, we are not an employer-of-record. We are a software platform that helps you manage your flexible team and are complementary to other finance or operations systems your business uses.
This looks great, but we don’t have enough time to install a new system or process.Creating an account with Liquid takes less than 10 minutes. We’ll do all the heavy lifting for you: from document (contract) template creation to migrating your existing vendor info or any other setup needed, we’ll take care of it during the free trial process and make onboarding to Liquid a breeze.
We already use our payroll system to pay our contractors. Why do I need Liquid?Although most payroll platforms offer modules to manage contractors, they tend to focus on individual freelancers who work on a more consistent basis (like employees) or merely provide you with the ability to make payments. Because Liquid focuses on contractors and service providers, we were built to handle the unique challenges of working with such a flexible team. Additionally, since managing contractors and paying employees should be entirely different processes, it is strongly advised that companies avoid using their payroll system in order to comply with regulations.
We use other ways to pay my vendors internationally. Is there a use for Liquid to me?Definitely. You can use Liquid to sign contracts, collect tax forms and other onboarding documents as well as to create work orders. In addition, you can collect invoices and use our approval workflow to automatically route invoices to hiring managers before payment. With work orders in the system, we can show you if the invoice you’ve received is right before you pay.
Do I need to use your contracts or work order system?You may utilize just our payments system if you like. However, by using our contracts or work order system, we help you stay in control, manage budget, and prevent overpayments. Also, we believe papering your agreements upfront can ensure the success of every project. We make the process simple because we believe it’s important.
Do my contractors and vendors have to create Liquid accounts, too?Yes, because this lets them manage their own information in their portal. This allows you to save time and prevent mistakes when inputting or making changes to your vendors’ and contractors’ business or payout information. Additionally, once they create their account, we provide your vendors free tools like proposal makers and invoice generators.
This looks great, but we don’t have enough contractors yet.Whether you’re managing one vendor or thousands, Liquid can help and add value. We offer plans that fit every size of business. For new businesses, we provide contract templates that help you get going, and for larger businesses, we provide a white-glove customer onboarding service.
Are you a payroll or AP system?Neither! We are an operating suite for SMBs that work with a flexible team of contractors, vendors, and partners, in addition to their full-time employees. Payroll is used for employees, and AP systems are used for invoice payments for vendors and suppliers. We provide the full workflow of contracts to payments for all non-employees – both individuals and entities, whether they’re located in the US or around the globe.
Our AP system works well enough for invoice payments. Can I use Liquid for the contracts only?Absolutely. Most of the features in Liquid can be used independently because it was built in a modular way. However, we strongly suggest using the entire suite as a whole in order to remain organized, compliant, and error-free.
