  • There should be a way to import a Chart of Accounts via csv or Excel. Already researched and saw this is not available. Could save an extreme amount of time to be able to develop a COA in a spreadsheet and then import it.

  • Hi There is a mismatch on my balance sheet, what can be the reason for it? Total assets = 354,315.39 and Equity + Liabillity is 414,689.12 - 60,491.03 = 354,198.09 So it is showing 117.30 difference Is there a way to check why is that?

  • Hello! I was wondering if the use of "tags" to track certain projects or customer transactions within Wave has ever been discussed or considered. Short of (i) going with a full-blown Class or Project Tracking system (similar to what QB uses); or (ii) having the ability to assign accounts other than Income to bills and invoices (assign …

  • When purchasing from out of state vendors that do not charge you sales tax, states generally require you to pay "consumers use tax", which is basically a sales tax that you accrue and pay to the state government, in my case quarterly, at a rate of 6.225% for my locality, however I cannot see in Wave how to add this as an automatic tax li…

  • Hi, Is there a way whereby i can tag each transaction of a particular project/event/invoice so that I will be able to track the profitability of that particulat project/event/invoice? This will be a great feature as many business dabble in multiple projects at one time and it would be good to be able to track which of the projects are yielding m…

  • Hello, in my state our when we file our TPT (Sales Tax) we have to show our total sales, then deduct the non taxable revenue to get the taxable revenue. Having the total sales and non-taxed income in the sales tax report would be a great time saver vs having to go to both the profit and loss and sales tax reports to get the needed info

    Hi Community I'm a freelance consultant based in Canada and I receive payments in USD. When I sell USD for CAD I expect Wave to compute realized foreign exchange gains and losses, however the system doesn't do that. I think many freelance consultants are doing FX transactions, so I wonder how do you get around that missing feature? (August 2021)

  • In summary, personal-affirmations are ideal for your overall physique as well as your unconscious mind. You can system the unconscious mind being what ever you want it to attract. The Top worry that a majority of individuals have related to positive affirmations is other individuals determining that they are able to do them. Like with the Legisla…

  • When you have Multiple Lines for a Journal Entry, you cannot move the lines up or down. Can you add a feature where you can: 1. Select a line and then have two buttons to move the line up or down? 2. Or, have a handle on the left of the line, that you can grab and move the line to where you want it in the list of lines? Thanks

  • Firstly, thank you Wave for the fantastic software. Reconciliation, search and filtering makes life so much easier. Table column spacing configuration isn't providing a good workflow: Good: Amount, date and actions columns are fixed and do not expand to waste horizontal space. (thank you) Problem a.) Description, Account & Category are all…

  • Crazy thought for a feature, I know, but Plaid simply isn't working, and it makes Wave look like liars (you advertise but do not provide a system that "can connect your bank accounts, sync your expenses"). It seems shocking to me that you would be considering new features while your old ones don't work.

  • I used to be able to quickly scan transaction entries and see those that had sales tax(es) already applied and those that didn't. Either I'm blind or Wave has now removed this item meaning I have to open and close and open and close and open and close each transaction line to se if I've applied tax? This is a very disappointing trend I've noticed…

  • It would be nice if you could link multiple accounts/debit cards and split payouts to each without having to remove and add each debit card to accomplish this. Ex. $1,700 invoice paid: Split: $500 to Operating Account $1,000 to Employee Payroll Account $200 to Business Savings Account

  • Every tax season I face the issue of going through all my transactions for totaling my expenses. What I would like to do is to have all transactions exported into a spreadsheet with the basic details of it and I can handle them there. Waves export options are pretty crap - to say the least. Wave doesn't offer any easy way to approach exporting a…

  • I am seeing I can add categories under the predefined top-level categories such as "operating expense" or "cost of goods sold." I don't however see any way to add sub-categories or new top-level categories for a more segmented list of categories. An example of this would be the following: * Expenses -- Custom Expense Type Cat…

  • I would like to export/import Bills & Receipts between the different businesses in my account. For example I have uploaded and booked a receipt in business 1. At the end of the month, after screening it seems the receipt should have been booked for business 2. How do I export the data between businesses, without doing the work all over again?

  • Hi, I receive invoices from another WaveApp user. I guess it would be great if I could download the invoice as a "Vendor Bill" directly to the system without entering the bill's info manually.

  • This is really a very important thing. All business have certain expenses that cannot be categorised as operating expenses. These expenses are shown in profit and loss statement after/below the Operating Profit. Every business has these kind of expenses. Example include Interest on Loan, gain/loss on any investment activities, Income Tax. An…

  • Hello, This topic has come up in the past with no further updates. Most healthcare providers, including psychologists, need to give patients a signed receipt for it to be accepted by their insurance companies. Currently I have to manually export the receipt as PDF, add a signature, then email. Can you add this as a feature or is there a way to a…

  • Hello Wave Team, It would be very useful to have an inventory management function built into Wave, that way we wouldn't have to use a separate spreadsheet or program to calculate COGS at the end of each period. This would also give us real-time insights into our profitability. With the amount of new e-commerce businesses that have been establish…

  • One of the most useful reports that I use as a manager is a report that I currently use where I can view a P&L with 12 months side by side so that I can look for abnormalities across the year. It helps me see where costs have been mis-categorized and how we are doing as a company.

  • I would like to request a new feature be considered. Time tracking. I've read the post where time tracking was discussed on Feb 28th but wanted to know if its on your road map and when you expect to have it launched. Thanks for all the great work you do.

  • I live in New Zealand where the fiscal year ends 31st March. I ve set up the fiscal year in the settings but it does not show in the reports. I know it's possible to manually edit the dates but it takes many clicks back and forth and it's quite irritating. Why is it not possible to save a date range or have my fiscal year in the date range? Thanks

  • Hi! I have not found a similar thread about this so let me open the discussion. This is an enhancement suggestion which probably will help other accountants as well: 1. Can the journal entries have sequence numbers so it will be easy to identify the entries thay may have to be adjusted/corrected? 2. Can you add in the Reports a General J…
