  • since IRS does not recognize taxes being paid by LLC the salary paid to the Officer would result in overpayment of all payroll taxes and they would have to be adjusted at year end or as soon as adjustments can be made within the same period before the monthly or quarterly payroll taxes payments are made, right?

  • We started on wave payroll midway through the year. Despite importing our previous months numbers before starting our first payroll on wave, it seems like wave payroll doesn't adjust for changes to salaries correctly going forward. It merely calculates the monthly totals for new salary figures as if it were salary/12. Support has confirmed this.…

  • Hello, we have a new small LLC. We're wanting to track time of our employees, but we're not doing payroll just yet (we all have other jobs... this is a new venture that no one is currently getting paid for). Is it possible to have the option of keeping a timesheet but not having to use the payroll plan? Thanks!

  • I am in the US and signed up for Payroll, Direct Deposit and Automated Tax Payments. I noticed that automated transactions are created as a Journal Entry when Payroll is approved, and an automated Expense Entry is created when my employees are paid via direct deposit. However there is no automated Expense Entry when Wave pays my Payroll Taxes both…

  • I have just reinstated wave and my employee after being on maternity leave. I am trying to approve the payroll (due tomorrow) but it defaults to 1.5 years ago when I stopped using my account its picking up where I left off. Its really frustrating and I cant figure out how to change my payroll dates to the more recent one.

  • I'm trying to run my first payroll, but the one employee (me) doesn't show up in payroll. Message is that I have to add an employee in order to run payroll. The payroll dates are July 3 - 31. Payday is today, August 9. Employee's salary is active since July 1. I've checked setting several times, but I'm must be missing something.

  • Hey all, This year is a bit of an odd year but I have moved from being employed (over half the year) and am now contracting out. After reading piles of government material (Canada - BC/AB to be exact), they said that until you pass the $30,000 threshold of earned income outside of your employment, you do not need a registered number/business as a…

  • What's Wave's best practice for reimbursing employees for business expenses? Does Wave have built-in functionality or a workflow that supports employees submitting expense reports for reimbursement? These expenses are incurred on an employee's personal credit card or paid out of pocket with cash. I've read the reimbursable expenses FAQ, but that u…

  • We are a seasonal lawn care business with only 1 or 2 employees and we are only in operation about 6 months of the year. Would we have to pay for the payroll service during the months we aren't in operation, or could we pay month by month during the months we need it?

  • Aloha, Is there any way to change the payroll frequency? We are in the US and need to change the payroll frequency from semi monthly to bi-weekly. This is because we have hired more people and have seasonal hires and realized that bi-weekly payroll makes more sense. I found that Waves does not allow to change the pay frequency after the first pay …

  • I have read all the other 401k posts available - BUT how does one move the payroll money to the correct account for Employee Contributions? I have added the Deduction to the Employee Record ($ every pay cycle), but not sure what's going to happen next and how to actually acquire the funds to move them.
