Everlance + Wonolo: Powering the Future of Temp Work

At Everlance we’re always looking for ways to help make life easier for people who are self-employed. That’s why we’ve partnered with Wonolo, a company that helps people find temporary jobs with more flexibility and transparency than traditional temp agencies.

If you’re looking for an extra way to make some cash and have never used Wonolo before, Wonolo is giving a special first-job bonus exclusively for Everlance users (use the code EVERLANCE when you sign up)!

The jobs available on Wonolo range from delivery, to customer service, to retail and warehousing. The platform is especially helpful for people who are looking to extra work. For example, let’s say you’re a great worker, but currently there’s only 29 hours per week available at your job at Target. Finding another part-time job can be hard, because other employers often want employees to work the same hours. The great thing about Wonolo is that there is no need for a resume or a cover letter. Wonoloers can pick up the shifts that fit their unique schedules and needs, all through an easy to use app.

Wonolo also helps companies in need of temporary workers and boasts staffing fees of 40% less than traditional temp agencies. Using their technology, Wonolo helps companies fill positions much faster than traditional agencies (“4 minutes vs. days or weeks,” according to Wonolo).

Another thing we’ve also appreciated about Wonolo is that even though they are tech company with amazing technology, they’ve made a big effort to create an in-person community. Wonolo hosts tons of great events for Wonoloers across the US.

The Everlance and Wonolo Partnership (+ Special Bonus!)

The partnership with Everlance will give Wonoloers a discount on Everlance Premium, so they can easily track their self-employed mileage and expenses and save big at tax time. Since many Wonoloers juggle many different types of gigs, staying organized can be especially challenging. We’ve heard first hand how useful having a single tool like Everlance to track all business expenses in one place can be, which makes us extra excited for this partnership.

Once again, be sure to check out Wonolo’s special first-job bonus exclusively for Everlance users, if you’re looking for a new way to make some money (use the code EVERLANCE when you sign up).

Our goal at Everlance is to keep finding ways to make your life easier as a freelancer, so if you have any ideas for ways in which we could do that, we’d love to hear from you! Our door is always open at support@everlance.com.

Are you a Wonoloer looking to claim your Everlance Premium discount? Simply open the Wonolo app, go to Home, tap The Wonolo Discount Program, and look for Everlance. Please note that The Wonolo Discount Program is only available to Wonoloers who’ve completed 5 jobs!

Company Cars: Rules, Costs & Popular Cars

Company Cars For EmployeesCompany cars can be an extremely attractive perk for employees and have many benefits to the employer as well. [give estimated company vehicles on the road]

Should Companies Offer Vehicles To Employees?

Among the chief benefits of providing business vehicles for your staff is…

  • Increased Exposure: A company vehicle can act as a sort of “rolling billboard” for your business. Every time an employee is driving the company car, others are exposed to your business if you have signage on the vehicle. You see this quite effectively in many of the trades, such as electric, heating, plumbing, construction & real estate.
  • Visible Reward: Employee morale is incredibly important to the success of a business. The happier your employees are, the more productive they can be. In lieu of an actual bonus (i.e. more money) some company’s use a company vehicle as a reward and it works well in 2 ways.
    • It’s Not Common: If you work somewhere and only a select few people get a company car it can make you the employee feel special and committed to the company.
    • Other Employees See This: Many employees will see the employees that get company cars and aspire to hit the same goal. They may look at the company vehicle as the ultimate reward, and most importantly they’ll have to work hard to get it. It’s the ultimate trophy.
    • High-Quality Company: If you give out company vehicles your employees know you value them. Not all companies have this perk and the companies that do have employees that know there’s a very special, attainable reward that only high-quality companies can offer.
  • Flexibility: Much like private air travel or a company cell phone a company vehicle gives an employee a definite convenience factor, and more peace of mind to the company. As an employer, you know that your key people have a company vehicle to conduct business at any time, as necessary.
  • Professional Image: This could actually be one of the best reasons to offer a company car, your business’ image. When a company is looking to retain control of their “brand” or public image, especially if there are face-to-face meetings of any kind, such as repair, real estate showings, estimates, high-powered business deals – a vehicle is one of the first things the prospective client or customer sees. You want your vehicle to represent your business, goals, experience & results. Many companies that offer vehicles to their employees know the right vehicle can make the best first impression.

We know the reasons why businesses choose to offer company vehicles, but what we don’t know are the rules, costs or tax implications associated with running a fleet of business vehicles, or even a select few company cars.

So, let’s start from the top.

Company Mileage: Tracking & Requirements

“Do I have to reimburse my employees for their company mileage?”

This is one of the most common questions related to employee expense reimbursement. Employers want to know if they have to reimburse their workers for business-related expenses.

While most companies do have a reimbursement policy in place, as it’s deemed “fair” to reimburse workers that have spent their own money on company mileage, travel & other expenses. The law doesn’t actually require it.

As of 2018, only California & Massachussetts require companies to reimburse employees for business expenses.

We’re not at all advocating that the lack of a law requiring employee reimbursement is “right” or “fair” and that employers should suddenly quit reimbursing employees to take advantage of the savings.

No, we just have to report the facts as they’re written.

As it stands, self-employed individuals can deduct mileage and other business expenses on their taxes, however, W2 workers (employees) who used to be able to deduct unreimbursed business expenses such as company mileage are no longer allowed to deduct these expenses under the new tax rules.

2019 IRS Standard Mileage Rate

2019 IRS Standard Mileage Rate

2019 IRS Standard Mileage RateMost recently the IRS released the IRS 2018 Standard Mileage Rate and in preparation for the 2019 IRS mileage rates, we’re creating this page in advance to keep you updated on mileage rate changes as they happen.

So, why do we update this page every year? Isn’t the standard mileage rate a fixed rate? Unfortunately, the mileage rate is not set value. The amount-per-mile fluctuates on a yearly basis by a penny or two, up or down.

For instance, in 2017 the rate was $0.535 per mile. In 2018 it’s $0.545 per mile. In 2019? Well, we don’t quite know yet (though, we’d guess it might rise a penny to $0.555) but when we do we’ll post it here as soon as the numbers are released.
