  • Hi all, very new to Wave hope to get some help here. I'm trying to start off 2019 afresh, but for 2018, I already have some entries. How do I clear off the remaining balance from 2018? Do I have to delete all the invoices etc. from 2018 to start clean? Thank you very much.

  • Hi, can anyone help? My partner inputs our receipts via the Wave mobile app, so they then appear on the bank transactions as a duplicate transaction alongside the actual expense transaction from the bank! Wave have said that this should be rectified by ticking the two and merging, which works in that it takes the receipt transaction off the sheet…

    Last week we had a payroll transaction and amount was deducted from account. There was a mistake on payroll and bank reverted the money back to account. Now it is showing deducted amount as "Uncategorized Expense" and reverted money showing as "Sale". How to category them? I cannot put them as "Transfer" because both from same account.

  • Hello, I'm a new user to Wave and I wonder how to deal with an over-payment to a bill. If I have a bill for 500 and I've paid 700, the bill's balance shows (-200) because of the excess payment. This is good. However, if I enter a new $300 bill from the same vendor and apply a payment to it, I don't have a clue (unless I remember) that I have c…

  • When I export to csv (or excel) the Transaction Id is 'truncated' in accounting.csv. For example, both 479827673359629331 and 479827848345992978 are exported as 4.79828E+17 This means I am unable to relate the exported data back to a unique transaction within the system.
