  • Does Wave have an option to import data that was manually done on excel. If yes does it auto recognize the data and puts everything in place on Wave cloud? I can only see the export option. How do I import all my excel entries to wave, or do I have to restart everything from scratch?

  • Hello, I opened a new business credit card in April that is linked to my checking account. Wave has created two separate accounts with identical transactions. The card is issued to only me - there are no other cards. Can someone explain this? I am assuming that it is creating one account for a user (me) and another account for all transactio…

  • Hi Please can you provide detailed instructions on how we now should move transactions between businesses (not personal) i.e so we can manage one bank account over multiple businesses. The only suggestions that I can see so far is we have to upload (manually as you can only link one bank account to each business) statements and then delete all th…

  • I received a bunch of refunds from Amex and now my Amex transactions are running a negative total. The original Amex expense is now refunded and shows as a debit, but the balance is a running negative. This is throwing off my balance sheet and p&l. Any ideas what I'm doing wrong or how to fix?

  • I am a club treasurer and have just started using Wave to handle the club accounts. However I find that the system has created a Chart of Accounts in which 70% of the Categories are totally irrelevant to my needs. How do I delete them? Alternatively how to I create a Wave account with a blank CofA so that I can set it up as I need? Thanks

  • Hi, I really don't like the new way of categorising transfers. It's not better, it's long winded and doesn't always work. I regularly use my PayPal account to pay for things even when my PayPal account is empty. If the money is transferred direct from my bank account, the correct transactions appear on my list of transactions in Wave. If PayPal…

  • Hello, I'm finding that when I forward my receipt to Wave - and I try to categorize it - I only see accounts of the Expense types. I purchased a large piece of equipment on a credit card, and I want to make sure that receipt / transaction is recorded as a fixed (capital) asset - Under "Propery, Plant, & Equipment". How do I tell the system t…

  • Hello, I would like to add a line in my invoice for an expense. What I mean is I sell some products to a shop but this shop is also renting me its kitchen. So on the invoice, I would like one line with an 'Income account' to sell my products and one line 'Expense account' to be charged for the rent. Is it possible? Thank you, Fanny

  • Hello, I really like the Expenses Breakdown graphic, really visual! The Australia financial year is from 01/07 to 30/06 each year, so it means that I can't have an overview from the last 6 months expenses. Would it be possible to add an option Last Year or Last 12/24 months for Expenses Breakdown ? Thank you Fanny

  • I recently purchased a new camera for my photography business and payed shipping on it. I feel like the shipping should be separate from the item cost especially since it's a depreciatable asset. Can I categorize the shipping in the same account as what I use for shipping product out to clients or should I make a new account? Thanks!
