  • I'm looking to switch from Quickbooks to Wave. I need to be able to track time and expenses on a project/client basis. Can I do this in Wave? If not, do people have recommendations for a free tool (either online, or Mac-compatible desktop)?

I have an S-Corp and work from home so I attribute 7% of certain personal expenses to my business and track this via receipts in my business profile.

  • My business is not making enough money for me to pay subscription fees from my business account. So, I use my personal credit card for such purchases. In hindsight, I can see how that was a bad idea. How do I record those business transactions from my personal credit card? I have been using the following: Account: Owner Investment / Drawings Dep…

  • I searched Google and on this site and it seems like Wave is missing the most basic report that show expenses by categories. I use this report every month to monitor expenses. Was hoping to replace Quickbooks but it doesn't look like I can do that quite yet.

  • I am separating my personal from business books. I have a number of durable purchases and investments that I paid for out of my personal accounts, in the Before Times when I didn't have Wave. I have receipts. I want to book these transactions as a loan from the owner, not as a capital injection, but I also don't want it to affect my bank acc…

  • We are a new business and have various payment terms. A typical term is 50% with PO 50% upon completion. What is the best way to deal with this? The customer will issue one PO for the total amount. How would you recommend we invoice this from wave? I have looked at the create invoice and accounting to find answers but have had no luck. Thanks

  • I'm not sure how the workflow works for adding things you buy to run your business. I see Bills and Receipts.. They seem totally separate but it seems like they should work together. Can someone explain? This is what I've done: I bought some supplies to run my business. I uploaded the receipt and then categorized the receipt as Production Suppl…

Or do you somehow lump them into one account? * How do I decide if something should be accounted for as an asset or an expense? Is there a minimum dolla…

    I'm trying to verify a receipt on a refund on a expense. Because it is a refund, the amounts on the receipt are negative, including the sales taxes. Wave doesn't let me do this, saying "Receipt total must be larger than sum of taxes". How do I deal with this?

  • We operate as a non-profit and want to start each year with a clean set of accounts to operate out of. I can create a new set of accounts each year and close the earlier one for new transactions, but didn't know if there was a way to "flatten" the accounts so starting balance is 0. Scoping the transactions for a report is good, but you…
