  • I have some accounts with different currencies than my main one (BRL). If I wish to transfer 1 USD to an account whose currency is 1 USD, I create an income transaction for 1 USD in that account and categorize it as a Transfer from the BRL account. I understand Wave will calculate the amount in BRL on its own, and most likely than not the amount…

  • Hello, My business is very simple. For any income, 17% will eventually be claimed as income tax by the local Inland Revenue Board (this is not a sales tax). I would like to have 17% of any income added to a liability account in Wave so that the expected year-end amount owed to the IRB is accounted for. How should I do this ? Is it "legal"…

  • I have 3 businesses that use the same credit card. Is there a way to track how much each business owes the card? How do I set that up? It is paid back by reimbursements from each company as it is a personal card.

  • I'm a fairly new Wave user. I've linked my bank accounts and credit cards and these automatically import when required, which I can then categorise without issue. Today I created my first bill for something I need to pay at the start of each month. This is paid by a bank transfer each month, however I cannot see a way to link the Transaction (au…

Any sales tax that I pay on items that I purchase that go directly into the creation of the product I can deduct from the sales tax that I have to remit to the State. I have sales tax rates set up for each city that I sell/buy in. However, is there a way to break that out even more so that my sales tax report refle…

  • I entered my transactions as normal and when I went to reconcile, I found the ending balance was incorrect. To backtrack, I deleted the offending amount to re-enter. Now my balance is reported incorrectly. I ended up deleting all the transactions I had entered for that month and the balance shows the deposit amounts even though those transactions …

Running a 'sales tax' report includes the Feb. payment towards the current years VAT, throwing the amount to pay out by the amount of the Feb. payment. (I'm fresh from spreadsheets and new…

  • Hi there, I recieved my first credit card payment the other day and noticed that a transaction was credited immediately under the Account "Payments by Wave". That Account appears under the heading "Money in Transit. That makes sense because it has to be process via Stripe first before hitting the bank account. When it did come int…

  • (Image) where's is the ENDING BALANCE that you can enter the value manually on any date you want and the DIFFERENCE view which could help you find what transaction you didn't key-in yet? It is no where to be found on the new system because until now I can still access the accounting system via https://accounting.waveapp…

  • As far as I can tell, the search at the top of the Transactions page only searches descriptions. There have been times when I knew the transaction amount and wanted to search for all transactions for the same amount. Is that not supported? Happy to add a feature request post, if so.
