  • Hello! I like sending out invoices from Gmail, but would like it even more if there was a way to change the default subject line and email body text. Is there a way to do this? Even better if there was a way to change the text using some of the info from the invoice itself (like the info below the word "Invoice" where I put the project …

  • Hi, I wonder what's the best way to handle receipt that has been paid with multiple payment method? For example, when I purchase something, I paid the supplier with credit card and gift card on one invoice. How about a receipt that has multiple category items?

  • I have created a Paypal account in my Chart of Accounts and by mistake the currency was set to EURO instead of USD. Actually the Paypal account is in USD. I have created 2 sales invoices in USD which I was paid for and added the income in my Paypal account. Now I want to change this account from EURO to USD but the system does not allow me. How c…

  • Hi - I need help with categorization. My siblings and I have a trust for the farm property we inherited from our mother. Would I list distribution payments as "owner equity" payments or in some other way?

  • I really don't understand how you can now not move transactions between businesses. This has completely made the product unusable for me. I have put so much effort into setting up Wave over the years and now all that work is undone as I can not longer use it. What research did you do when you decided to drop this feature?

  • Hi all! I'm starting a business and I want to buy a Phone and maybe a laptop for it, but I have no revenue yet... how could I mark this so then I can pay with my own cash and then get refunded? I know, pretty basic stuff, but like everything in setting up a business, it's learning by doing! Cheers! Pol

  • As you may already know, when you accept online payments with Wave, we automatically create a transaction in your accounting records. Once the payout for the transaction is deposited in your bank account, your bank connection will typically import that deposit transaction within two days. When this happens, Wave automatically creates a transfer b…

  • It is surprising that only some reports have the export button while other do not. I was looking at the reports and noticed that Trial Balance has an export button, but Profit and Loss or Income Statement does not have. Businesses do need to extract these reports for regulatory submissions from time to time. Is this a problem with the browser or …

  • Hi there, I don't seem to be able to find any information on how to include this tax in expenses... Can someone explain a simple example. Say my profits at £1000 and I owe £200. How do I expense this so that is doesn't change my profits for the year, which are of course still £1000. Thanks Philip

  • Hi. I am completely new to Wave, I am used with using Sage/Xero etc. When you look at the VAT100, is there a way of reconciling those transactions so that the next quarter you can somehow run the report which will show any transactions from the previous period which has not yet been included on a return?

  • Hi, I have processed a vendor invoice, paid $535.62 which included 10% GST of $48.69. I have paid the full amount and marked the invoice as paid $535.62 however, Wave is showing $48.69 the GST element as a liability? Does anyone know if I am doing something wrong? Seems wierd...would be grateful for any advice, thanks

  • So I'm confused about how to categorize cc payments. It feels as though I would be recording 2 payments. The first being categorizing the itemized expenses and the again as a lump pay down of the credit card balance. How do I go about recording the pay down of my credit card balance? Also, I'm confused why some appear in red and others appear in g…

I am confused and after reading several of these posts I am not sure I have been doing this correctly. We have a couple short term rental properties and when getting them set up we have used our personal credit card to One get points and Tw…

  • I have an operating corp and a holding corp. Holding corp owns operating corp. I own holding corp. Operating corp dividends its income up to holding corp. And holding corp dividends out to me, How should these dividend payments should be captured and categorized? It is unclear in the UI.

  • Hi Wave Community...first post here. I invested in a software and training in order to start my LLC recently. I paid for this before starting the LLC. I paid with my own money. How would I track this to mark it as a start-up expense in Accounting?

  • Bills should be downloadable as a document & Payments (expenses) for any transaction should have the option to be documented, just like sending receipts to customers from the invoices.

  • Hi all, I'm looking at my Profit & Loss statement and I'm seeing that Wave is recording: Payroll Gross Pay + Payroll Employer Taxes + Payroll Salary & Wages as operating expenses. This means it shows the payroll amounts twice as an expense and this expense is duplicate. When I look at Payroll Gross Pay, it shows in the books as Journal…

  • Wave is an excellent software package for the self employed (proprietor) entrepreneur. It easily keeps track of billings, collections and disbursements. It allows the entrepreneur to see his or her income at a glance. The income of a proprietor is revenue less expenses. There is no T4s issued for a proprietor - although a proprietor can have empl…

  • when I report my invoice as paid I merge it with the bank transaction and change the catagory to the service that the payment is for. The problem is when I go back into the invoices its back there again showing as not paid. If I leave the catagory alone the income does not show on my profit and loss report because the invoice has its own unique ca…

  • Hello! New to accounting. I'm trying to figure out how to 'set money aside' for a big bill at the end of the year. Licensing fees, for example, I have to pay every year and I'd like to make sure I have the funds available. Or lets say I want to put money aside every week to cover new furniture. How would I do that?

  • The owner purchases something with a personal credit card for the purpose of the business. Following this, an e-transfer is done from the company bank account to reimburse the owner. How do we track taxes paid by the company? There's this article, (https://support.waveapps.com/hc/en-us/articles/208622836-Handling-business-expenses-with-a-personal…
