  • **Let me preface our business. We are using Wave to send out invoices to Scout families for certain items to be paid, entering in items that have been purchased and a connection to our bank. We are not using Wave as a full accounting platform. Very limited! ** I would like to know how others are handling Returned Checks (NSF) from the bank…

  • These tips may be redundant but, because they persist, they bear mentioning: 1) Generate a business plan. You may know what you want but if you can't put pen-to-paper and articulate it.... how good is your idea. 2) Start small - start as a proprietorship. You do not need to incorporate right away. 3) Most people who incorporate online forget th…

  • Hi there, Just set up a brand new Wave account, and it seems like it is going to do what I need it to do. However, in the set up process I entered the incorrect email address. I have now added in the correct email address and have verified that. However, I need to delete the incorrect original one. How can I go about doing that. I don't want who…

  • I'm retired, with a small hobby business... meaning it involves traditional hobby subjects (crafts), but is little more than a hobby in the IRS sense... just enough where I feel compelled to do a Schedule C for it. I'm also a brand-new-comer to Wave and accounting, trying to move away from spreadsheet accounting. So I'm a little confused about …

  • I have a client on Wave with two businesses so I need to track both business with the same Wave account. Is there a way to differentiate the businesses in wave? If yes, can I have access to multiple buisnesses as a collaborator? And finally, can I easily navigate between collaborator businesses?

  • Hello I am a freelance marketer and have just started using Wave, so far so good. My issue lies more with the understanding of accounts than wave in itself. I charged a client for my design and print preparation of business cards and organised the print of them. I split these two up on the invoice for my design costs and the external printing c…

  • Recently, I’ve been really questioning if it’s time for me to make my part time freelancing job into a serious career. I currently am a photographer for small events throughout the week but the work seems to be coming more regularly and it’s work that I enjoy. I’ve been taking the steps to make this into a viable business and want to make sure th…

    We [The Racking Guys] are a start-up company using Wave to handle most of our invoicing/payroll. Wave has been a huge help in our gains and success. I am a huge fan of the application and will recommend it to any small business start-ups I share a conversation with. I have yet to dabble into other features of the application, when I do I know …

  • This was actually the catalyst for me starting my own business. The 2018 Telstra Small Business Intelligence report found that (in Australia) 62% of customers will stop considering a business if they can’t find information about it online. Also, in Australia, only 50% of small business actually have a website. So, if you're a small business wit…

  • With 3rd quarter payroll taxes approaching and sales taxes at the same time, how are you preparing your clients? For those that have businesses, are your payroll taxes automated where your taxes are automatically being filed and paid or are you preparing your statments in a file to send to your CPA or bookkeeper?

  • It really didn't come down to money for me to switch to Wave. I had another cloud accounting package for a few years and what really frustrated me was the weak integration with my bank. I read about the robust solutions that Wave has built in conjunction with banks to ensure that Wave was treated like a first class citizen. The Royal Bank of Ca…
