  • I am new to WAVE, very new. I have used Quick books for years and I want to simplify things so that is why I started WAVE accounting. I need to assign the value of our fixed assets that are on our books now in WAVE. I have them entered but I can't figure out how to put the value to them.

  • Hello I'm the Treasurer for a school PTA, so using the free version of Wave. Nothing particularly complicated and I've been using it for a couple of months and have a basic handle on it, but I don't see how I can add a .pdf to a transaction (i.e. a receipt and other documents linked to the transaction from the bank reconciliation) like you can …

  • Hi there! I own several properties and I employ a property manager. The PM collects the rent, they take their percentage and then cut me a check for the rest. My question is how do/should I track that in the WavesApp? Since the app is linked to my bank, the transaction is good but not sure how I should add PM Fees. Example: Rent: $500…

  • Hi, I record all my invoice from the supplier I use in Bills. But I often end up receiving refunds from them for returned goods. I create a new transaction ("Add Income") and categorize it under "Refund received for a bill in wave" and select the correct bill the credit is associated with. When I go back to the original bill the refund was issued …

I set up an "account" Called Owner Income in Other Income category. I th…

  • Hi, I own a rental property through a limited company. When the company bought the property it had to pay a substantial amount of Stamp Duty Land Tax (SDLT). This tax is sufficient to cover profit for the next several years (I don't know if it's permissible to count it against profit though when calculating corporation tax?). When doing the acc…

  • Hi, I have followed the instructions in this article to adjust both accounts for the business expense. I have debited the appropriate expense account, however, when I go to Transactions and pull up that Category, there's no record of expense there. Eg, I paid for lunch with a client using my personal account. I recorded the expense in my persona…

  • I have a receipt for business equipment that should be categorized as an asset. It appears Wave only allows me to categorize a purchase as an expense!? Sure I can categorize it as an expense and then go edit the transaction to change it to an asset, but that is a hassle when it would be so much easier if Wave let me select an Asset account. D…

  • I have been splitting a lot more transactions lately and I have noticed some of them insert the secondary category into the transaction view whereas others show the primary category; surely it should always show the first category selected as this is more than likely the most prominent one? For example if I split the transaction into: Computer …

  • Hi, I'm new to Wave - loving it. However, I'm getting duplicate income entries. I am connected to my bank account and it seems that might be part of the issue? When I get paid and tell wave an invoice is paid, that shows up in accounting but then the credit into my bank account shows up too. I'm not sure how to correct this? I'm guessing I…

  • When I select the reconcilliation option it only gives me the most recent month, starting from todays date, even though my transactions date back over a year. I think this has happened because I disconnected my bank account and then reloaded it (I had set it up in the wrong category so had to start over). How do I set the reconcilliation start d…
