  • 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…

  • 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?

    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?

  • Hello, I am owning a small business in India and am getting small jobs from the US to get things done in Software industry. 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…

  • Just started with another payroll system but come to realize that I'm a very small company with no more than 2 to 3 part time employees. How do I switch over to wave payroll? is there a number I can call to get this set up?

  • I only need to run payroll once or twice a year, I am my company's single employee. Does anybody else do this? It doesn't seem worth paying for the service. Can I just put in a journal entry and move all the money around manually?

  • We have an hourly training wage, and their regular hourly wage. It would be extremely helpful during payroll if there was 2 different wages, as it's common for employees to have a combination during the same pay-period. It would also make paystubs less confusing for employees who trying to see the different amounts... As well as assisting in the …

  • Hi, i am considering using payroll, but don't see a flexible pay date. I will independent contractors that will be paying quarterly and or semi annually. I don't seem to see that...Do you support this?

  • Following on from a question by Mani in another discussion, we'd love to learn more about your relationship with 1099/contractors. How many contractors do you hire? How do you bill them and how often? What tools do you work with now?

  • Hi Love Wave and I recommend it to all my small business clients. One small suggestion for the Wages and Tax Report for Canada. When a business reports their period payroll and remits source deductions, they use this report. It has all the key info BUT it would be great if the report totaled all the amounts owing to the CRA on the far right side…

  • I run a small design studio and pay our artists on a flat rate, a daily rate, or a weekly rate. As far as I can tell this still jives with NY State law regarding work hour exceptions for specialized fields - but there isn't a way to set up this payment in Wave yet. It would be great! Especially since keeping track of a multiple short term employee…

  • As a general contractor we pay some invoices directly to vendors, but have a title company pay other invoices. We record the expense in wave regardless of who pays the invoice as we have a line of credit that the title company pulls from for the invoices they issue. The challenge we have is the title company sends out 1099's for all of there paym…
