  • Hi, I've contacted Wave several times over the last week and had no response. I'm hoping someone can respond here. I had a business setup in Wave when I was operating as a sole trader. I accepted credit card payments through Stripe. When I changed to a different business structure earlier this month, I needed to accept credit card payments ther…

  • As with the situation all over the world, my business has been massively impacted by lack of events and as a result I've had to seek government assistance such as their SEISS scheme and Universal Credit. How should I use Wave to log benefits?

  • :# I'm sure this has been discussed before.. I run a small H.R Admin business.

  • Hi everybody, I have incorporated a company in July 2020 and I was advised that I could claim back the VAT from pre-incorporation expenditure going back 48 months. To that end, are the items considered a shareholder loan or are they categorised another way? Any advice would be much appreciated.

  • I have just completed my year-long Wave experiment and I am (truly) very sad to say I've just ponied up the coin to buy the newest version of QB desktop. :disappointed: Wave is a wonderful platform that I really like, so I would be remiss to not explain myself. The bottomline for me is reporting capabilities. I need to be able to drill down, de…

  • My business is small (property rentals) and while it’s been useful getting things sorted to see that income and expense, the main purpose of accounting this way now is 100% about tracking a Personal Loan to a family member, I’ve managed to get the past 4.5 years recorded properly so far, but this has only been for things that can actually be seen…

  • I'm looking to switch from Quickbooks to Wave. I need to be able to track time and expenses on a project/client basis. Can I do this in Wave? If not, do people have recommendations for a free tool (either online, or Mac-compatible desktop)?

  • 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 witho…

  • As an employer, you are unlikely to have the time to focus on hiring, particularly when it comes to passive recruitment i.e. hiring people who are already working elsewhere. A workforce staffing agency, over time, develops a deep network with both hiring managers and job aspirants. For best workforce staffing agency in USA contact to Rangam Consul…

  • Hi, We use Wave very infrequently and only for invoicing (not for receiving payments). We have been trying to move our data and it's really a hassle. Is Wave offering any paid transfer to the new system? We only have 3 days to do this.

Is it possible to set up a consulting engagement as a service that I can track invoices/payments against the quoted cost of the project overall? Example - Engagement #1 is scheduled to last 3 months and cost $20000. I want to bill bi-weekly and be able to track to…

  • Hi Wave team, This might be something to pass onto your CX or web developers but the current experience for existing users is painful if they accidentally click on the wrong google account when signing into wave. Trying to sign in with the wrong google account forces you into an onboarding flow that you can't get out of easily. Clicking on 'Your…
