  • I need to submit my business return to CRA and because my first year was very simple (zero revenue, very few expenses), I don't want to use my accountant for this (I have another business that is much more complicated and he and my bookkeeper use Quickbooks to manage bookkeeping and accounting for that). From what I can tell, Wave doesn't have …

  • Hi All, My partner is a sole trader (UK) and I am helping her with wave - she is a freelance artist. There aren't a lot of transactions yet but most of the purchases that she's made through her business account are for paint/brushes etc - I've been marking these down under the "Office Supplies" Expense Category. Is this correct?

  • I have a dropshipping business and need to record the purchases I make, I don't hold inventory. Just confused where to do this as if I click on Chart of Account / Expenses - I can see Cost of Goods, but there is no selection for this when trying to allocate transactions. I assume I'm missing something simple but would appreciate assistance.
