I can record payment directly on the invoice but then I am forced to delete the bank payment or risk having two entries for the same payment. Any ideas on how else to reco…

Should we each have our own "Partner Investment / Drawings" ca…

I've tried setting up a 'TAX Savings" account in the chart of accounts then using a journal transaction to move funds to it from my general bank account - that all works fine. However, now the general bank account's value …

  • 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.

  • Need help with accounting for 'drawings' or taking a draw by the owner. When I try to do this and try to take from my main checking account Wave says that all of this type of transaction must pass through a equity account. Say What?

  • 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!

When I donate money to the Company. I am really adding capitol, so do I put it in…
