At the bottom of my invoice there is an automated currency conversion (Currency conversion: Sh562,864.72 (TZS) at 2251.4588905164) but this rate does not reflect the true exchange rate in town. Is there a way to change this co…

  • Hi there, I live in BC where we have both two sales taxes: GST (recoverable) and PST (non-recoverable). When I record an EXPENSE using Wave (see my Shopify transaction), you can see only GST is marked as recoverable, even though I accounted for both taxes in my entry. For expenses, my sales taxes are behaving as expected. However, whe…

    I am setting up my first VAT registered company on Wave and, coming from Sage, I have a question about the various codes I used to use on there. I had the standard T1 for 20% VAT, T0 for 0% VAT and T9 for transactions that were left off the VAT return completely, such as journal transactions and certain financial transactions. Do I need to create …

  • When I make a payment to the government for my HST (sales tax) I had debited the HST Payable account and credited the Bank Account the payment was made from. The payment was made in January - but it was for the 4th Quarter owing - so Oct-Dec. But then I end up with an incorrect amount showing as owing for my next period (Jan-March) because I have…

  • My home currency is GBP. I had $422.87 in a "Cash - USD" account. I exchanged the whole $422.87 and got £304.28. . I entered a transfer of $422.87 from the "Cash - USD account" into my "Cash on hand" account. The "Cash-USD" account showed a balance of $0.00 which is correct but also a balance of -£38.49. How can that be? They should both be z…

  • Has anyone figured out how to print journal entries/transactions from Wave. Any accounting system has this basic functionality for record-keeping but I can't seem to find out how to do this in this application!! Any help appreciated.

  • I apologize if this has been addressed elsewhere. I'm new to accounting (academic starting up a side business) and new to wave. This might be more of an accounting question actually: what would be the best way to account for assets that a partner has contributed? Eg at the start of our business, I bought a bunch of ropes and climbing gear. This wa…

  • Can we create an expense group/ category and sub-group/sub category. For example: Category : Advertising and within this category a sub category could be: Print Media, or Trade show events or catalogs etc. How can we incorporate this? Similarly for Payroll and other major categories. Thanks

  • And the category is a REFUND for whatever category the transaction was. IE Refund for Inv_Yarn etc. I have to go in to EVERY SINGLE transaction and change it. I *feel like it happened with some update. I'm looking for a BULK way to edit them all 'backwards.' Has this happened to anyone else? Dana

  • Hi. I have a number of aliases for my main email address e.g. "[email protected]", "[email protected]" etc. I have successfully added and verified my main email address and one of the aliases ([email protected]), however, I am not receiving the verification email for another of the aliases ([email protected]). It is not a problem with junk/spam filtering. Any advice?

  • When recording that an invoice has been paid via the bank entry, Wave doesn't recognise the invoice because the currency conversion has delivered a different amount in the bank. I can record payment directly on the invoice but then I am forced to delete the bank payment or risk having two entries for the same payment. Any ideas on how else to reco…

I've tried setting up a 'TAX Savings" account in the chart of accounts then using a journal transaction to move funds to it from my general bank account - that all works fine. However, now the general bank account's value …

  • 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.
