  • I've connected my business checking account, but I wanted it set as "cash on hand". On the drop down, that isn't present. What gives? Would appreciate some guidance. Kind Regards

  • Hi there! I'm selling items on Amazon Seller Central. After 2 weeks, Amazon transfers the money to my Bank Account. Meanwhile, my bank account spends money on shipping, etc. for Amazon. This means that for 2 weeks, I don't have an accurate display of the current profit. This is why I wanted to use an accounting software life Wave. So, both…

  • I'm just setting up Wave (converting from Quicken Home & Business), and I'd like to know how other people use Wave for the personal side of their finances, or if they don't, how you interface with a personal finance program. The business side of Wave is working well for me, but as a solo businessperson, I also need to manage my cash flow on th…

  • Hi, I am Canadian but my major client is US and pays in US dollars. They will be sending my business checks that I plan to deposit into a US-dollar account. To save on the exchange fees charged by my bank, I hope to first transfer the money to my personal US account, do a Norbert's Gambit, and then transfer it back to my business in CAN dollars…

  • Trying out Wave and brushing up on accrual basis accounting... I had a balance sheet where Cash and Bank + To Be Received - To Be Paid Out = 0. When I added an expense for purchasing a piece of equipment, the bank account reduced properly and the equipment shows as a long-term asset. However, the top line of the balance sheet is now negative by th…

    I was sent payments for invoices, by check, in November and December. However, I have been out of the country since before they were sent to me, and will not be back till January, so I won't actually get the checks and be able to deposit them into my account until then. I operate my business on a cash accounting basis, so I'm assuming I'll just ac…

  • Greetings, all! This is my first - and surely not my last - post, as I bravely try for the first time to do my own accounting - ulp! The instruction for "How to create a transfer between two accounts" is not working for me when I want to transfer money from "Business Checking" to "Cash-on-hand," aka petty cash. I am getting a message that says:…

Each product has invoices and when posting expenses, I choose in the ITEM collumn, the product which the expense is related to. Now I want to evaluate the profit of each product and calcu…

  • Hello, I wondered what I should put a car park ticket as in my expenses? I'm a wedding photographer and had to pay to park at this particular venue. I could only see car insurance, fuel and similar as separate sections. I've just decided to go from my silly spreadsheet to this and am finding it massively helpful already. TIA

  • I tried to create an asset account for my recoverable expenses (things like travel and meals that I get paid back for in full, including taxes). However, whether I put it under Expected Payments from Customers or Other Long Term Assets, it doesn't show up under the categories for classifying receipts. Note: there is another thread on using receipt…

  • I created an account for my PayPal transactions, and initially brought in transactions by downloading into CSV and then importing them. Now I'd like to link my PayPal account so that I don't have to do CSVs anymore. But whenever I try to create the link, I end up having to create a new PayPal account. Is there no way to link an existing account…

  • Unfortunately it's too late for us to take on new cases that are wanting their 2018 returns done and filed by the deadline BUT we're always looking to engage new clients, even if it means you are going to be late with your 2018 return. Indeed, if you sign up with us in January we will guarantee filing your 2018 return BEFORE the daily penalties ki…

    So, Wave was able to import my Wells Fargo bank statements back to September 9, 2018 for a new account. I went in to Wells Fargo to try to get a file showing all transactions from January 1, 2018 to September 9th, 2018, but the file format won't upload into Wave. Is it possible to enter the transactions from January 2018 to September 2018 manually…

  • I taught myself some bookkeeping basics so I can have intelligent conversations when I can finally pay for a bookkeeper. Like many, I started a small business using personal credit cards to pay for everything. As a thought exercise I was thinking about how I might do things differently with the knowledge I have now. I could have liquidated the …

  • Our company has two main currency accounts CAD and USD. The challenge is that we don't want to calculate the exchange on the day a purchase or payment is made. The reason is that we collect and pay for services in USD as well. If I convert money when I receive it and pay the same amount to a supplier a few days later, the amounts are off. We don't…

    After entering some transactions today to reconcile historical Checking Account statements (from a few years ago - just started using Wave so trying to enter old transactions), I must have inadvertently entered a transaction that somehow resulted in having a Starting Balance < Opening Balance. How do I correct this please? Thank you.
