  • Has anyone figured out how to print journal entries/transactions from Wave. Any accounting system has this basic functionality for record-keeping but I can't seem to find out how to do this in this application!! Any help appreciated.

  • I apologize if this has been addressed elsewhere. I'm new to accounting (academic starting up a side business) and new to wave. This might be more of an accounting question actually: what would be the best way to account for assets that a partner has contributed? Eg at the start of our business, I bought a bunch of ropes and climbing gear. This wa…

  • And the category is a REFUND for whatever category the transaction was. IE Refund for Inv_Yarn etc. I have to go in to EVERY SINGLE transaction and change it. I *feel like it happened with some update. I'm looking for a BULK way to edit them all 'backwards.' Has this happened to anyone else? Dana

  • Hi. I have a number of aliases for my main email address e.g. "[email protected]", "[email protected]" etc. I have successfully added and verified my main email address and one of the aliases ([email protected]), however, I am not receiving the verification email for another of the aliases ([email protected]). It is not a problem with junk/spam filtering. Any advi…

  • When recording that an invoice has been paid via the bank entry, Wave doesn't recognise the invoice because the currency conversion has delivered a different amount in the bank. 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…

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 va…

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • If I go through the "expense by vendor" report, it shows the totals for all Vendors with a recorded transaction....but there doesn't appear to be any way to see transactions that don't have a vendor listed. 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…

  • I'm woefully new at accounting and freshly on my own with a small restaurant... please use small and simple terms! lol. I will catch up! 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…
