  • Basically, businesses are not allowed to use spreadsheets for accounting because data can be deleted at anytime. Instead, all transactions must be posted. If mistakes are made, edits themselves will be posted.

  • Im not sure what to do in this situation. I purposely did not add my credit card to my wave account because I wanted to add reciepts and didnt want to worry about duplication. I dont want to have to go through hundreds of reciepts and pair them with the credit card transactions. Too time consuming. When I go to pay my credit card wave counts that …

  • I frequently have expenses/income in a different currency from my primary business currency. Is it possible to select a different currency when entering an expense/income transaction? I thought this was a feature of Wave but have been unable to find a way to do it. Any advice? Thank you.

I know that some of my transactions have been entered without a vendor....due to error or oversight, as it requires an extra step. I just woul…

I'm setting up Wave but how can I use the system to record my daily sales since it is implausible to record each transaction. Any advice on how to best use Wave for a restaurant setting is helpful!

  • My company is not limited by stock value, and thus doesn't have Equity per se. Since account names are arbitrary in Wave, I have classified a liability as Member Contributions, and another as member Capital. I have placed these in 3500 and 3600 accounts respectively. When I donate money to the Company. I am really adding capitol, so do I put it in…

  • How should I handle cash back rewards from the credit card I use for my business? The cash back reward gets automatically applied to my balance, reducing what I owe. I don't want to chart it as Income. Should I create a new chart of account in the Assets or Equity section specifically for the cash back reward? Any other suggestions?
