  • Hello, It would be very helpful if there were a way to link an accounting transaction to the associated tax marked as paid in the payroll section. It would just help me to keep my books more organized. Thanks for all you do! Sean

  • I am shopping around for payroll provider for 2022. Does Wave have a way to include non-taxable (and non-CPP, non-EI) benefits? There are a lot of benefits that are not taxable. This option seems missing from the Wave. Or am I missing something or is there a workaround?

  • How do we contact Wave Payroll if we are not a customer? I have a question before/if we move to Payroll. I've already posted on the forum with no response from Wave.

  • Hi, I was able to get start a payroll for myself (sole employee of my Incorporated business) but I need to give myself retroactive pay for the past 3 weeks. Is there a way to do that within Wave? I've tried looking in the Help Centre and the Wave Community but can't really seem to find a way to do it. I'm hoping someone here can help me out. Tha…

  • I use Wave accounting and plan to switch to Wave Payroll from Intuit. * I pay contractors quarterly. Your pricing says, "$6 per independent contractor paid". Is that per month? For example, if I pay 4 contractors in January, the extra fee would be $24. In February and March, I don't pay any contractors, do I now pay $0 in extra fees…

  • Not currently available in Quebec :( Dear Wave Team, do you know of any product management plan to get this feature available au Québec ? SVP :-)

  • Your information goes over paying contractors and invoices but what about paying yourself?

  • Rather than having to go into the payroll transaction after approving payroll and find the detail line and change "Uncategorized Expense" to something else, I think it would be nice to be able to choose the appropriate expense account for Expense Reimbursements when setting that up in Add to Pay in the Payroll section. Particularly on re…

  • Hi everyone, For those who use Payroll by Wave, what other tools do you use to manage your employees? Is there one that you'd like to see integrated with our Payroll application? For example, do you use an HR software? or manage schedules and time offs on spreadsheets?

  • Hello all, I am looking to setup payroll but only have contractors. It keeps telling me that I have to complete my payroll by adding an employee. What do I do?

  • I just did a late s-corp election ( USA ) and I need to run payroll for the 1st time for the total amount of the 1 employee's salary but not pay the employee because they have already been paid for all wages in 2020. I do need to have Wave calculate and distribute the payroll taxes and unemployment tax to the IRS and State. Is this even possible?

  • Since I was denied to automate tax payments (what!?) please stop advertising to me to turn on that feature. I also get tired of seeing it as an option in the GUI. Once you have denied someone the option, you should not keep showing it to them (I keep clicking on it hoping that somehow I won't see the dreaded ... "declined".). :smile: Tha…

  • I recently got paid but it’s not showing up in instant payout like usual. Not sure why but really need to cash out sense I have already been waiting for this contractor to pay his bill. And sense I already had to pay my guys 3k out of pocket. Please help.

  • I'd like to add subaccounts under payroll liabilities and the ability to map things to them. Right now, "Payroll Liabilities" is collecting a lot of stuff, and so it isn't always clear which government entity I've forgotten to send money to. I'd like something like "FICA taxes payable" and " wages payable" and "u…

    Please enable payroll feature for European companies (such as Netherlands). It would be awesome if we can do personnel accounting using your software in a professional way.

  • I am a contractor here in Alberta. I have set up my payroll date as being the 10th of the month which means I need to run payroll by the 6th of the month. The client I work for paid their last invoice late which meant I couldn't run payroll in August for my July time. So, here's my question. Can I run my payroll for July now for payout Septemb…

    Hired a new employee last Monday Aug 3 on Aug 7 and entered the hours however, wave wouldn't count those hours when i ran payroll. it only counted the following week which makes the gross income and tax deductions year to date incorrect. How do i fix that? I continued to pay him via other payment since it was "too late" to pay direct d…

  • Hi, are you looking to add NJ to your list of Tax Service states ? I love using Wave for accounting for my Consulting business. Looking to upgrade and add payroll next. Will be great if the tax service in NJ is avlbl.

  • Hi! We have been using Wave for a while now, and plan to upgrade to payroll processing and 1099 filings. We don't have any employees, so everyone is a contractor. Is there a way to create a recurring contractor payment if we know the payment every pay period? And, to ensure I understand the payroll fee, is it $35 per month base plus $6 per contra…

  • I've used Wave for years and love how the service you provide has grown. I do not do direct deposit or automatic remittances because it doesn't work for my company which means.... one minor annoyance that continues to make life difficult is an inability to mark my payroll taxes as having been sent. This would be a helpful little visual administra…

  • Somehow I entered zero hours for one of the two weeks my employee worked, and the payroll is approved. How do I go about getting another week of pay added to her pay? And quickly? Or does she have to wait to the next pay period? Do I just double her hours for one week- or will that force it into overtime?

  • Hi, I use Paychex currently, who make it fairly effortless, with all the submission and reports etc. They also prepare and pay my Workman's Comp Insurance. Can this be achieved with Wave?

I am having my payroll in India and I am not able to enter the payroll expenses in the app. Is there a possibility for that? I can calculate the total amount to be spent on employees with tax and other benefits and just put d…

  • We could be paying for a freelancer or payment with no receipts. In order to document this scenario, a signed voucher could verify it.

  • I approve payrolls a couple of months into the future to ensure they don't get missed. There doesn't appear to be any way to change or delete a payroll that has been approved. Funding shouldn't be the issue because these are payrolls well into the future. Is there a way to change or delete an approved payroll?

  • I wish I could "pre approve" payroll and schedule the day I want it to be processed. Our week ends on Friday, so I usually finalize hours anywhere from Saturday to Monday and then I have to remember to go back in and hit the button to "approve payroll" on Tuesday for pay day to be on Friday. If I hit the approve payroll button…
