  • Hi guys, Hoping someone can help me out here. I have 2 companies set up within Wave under a single login. Right now, if I email a receipt to [email protected], it defaults to one of the companies, is there any way to email receipts to the 2nd company? I could use another email? Or is there some other way to do this? Thanks in advance!

    Is there a way to do bulk editing of receipts? I have multiple receipts for one merchant (aka Uber) every month and it is very time-consuming to update categories and payment account for each. Maybe allow a drop down to add "vendors" as merchants with preferences prepopulated? Ex: Uber is always Travel Expense and paid with cash on hand.

  • Hi, I can see how to set up a journal entry to make a loan/mortgage payment, but my question is... In Accounting/Transactions, where the payment is listed from the bank auto reconciliation, how do I select the appropriate category? In the drop down list it only appears to allow expenses, income or equity, but the correct category is none …

  • Hi, I need the customer VAT number to be printed on the invoice, but cannot find a field for this. Where do I put it? For now I have made it part of the address, but that is not really pretty. Best regards, Peter

  • My apologies if this has been answered before. I searched, but could not find a discussion on this. To manage payments made on a website through credit cards, I have added a payment gateway (account) as a Cash & Bank account. I now: * Record a payment against an invoice as paid by credit card into the payment gateway account * Pass an…

  • Quick two questions. After I logged back in after hearing about the recent announcements. I am interested in the checkout functionality - will this come to the UK? Also, I see on the website that it now says Wave payments. When I log in it still has my stripe account attached. I don't mind as they are the same transaction fees. But is this f…

  • Hi all New user here! I have agents sell my services. I send them an invoice minus their 20% and they pay. All easy enough. But then I need to record the commission as an expense with GST. This won’t be seen on my bank statement. How do I record this in Wave? I need to see this expense and GST in the reporting but be able to reconcile …

  • Hi! I use a free time tracker called Clockify. It can export my time data per client as a csv or excel spreadsheet. Is there any way to import the data from this to make an invoice? I'd rather not have to copy and paste each time entry. Ideas? Thanks!

  • Hi Wave, How does one pick "LLC" as their "Type of Organization", as it's not listed among the 3 options I'm seeing (i.e., Sole Proprietorship, Partnership, or Corporation)? If there's no way to select LLC, what do you recommend selecting instead assuming the organization is an LLC that's disregarded to an S Corp? Note: S Corp only has one s…

    We are a sports club looking to utilise Wave, and would appreciate assistance in how to setup and account for prize vouchers.

(2) Once the shop/company receives and accepts the voucher for th…

BUT my Paypal account does not. Why? It makes no sense that I must dig into a report in order to find my paypal balance. It's money, just like money in any ot…

I have a slightly complex situation where I used personal credit card to pay for a business transaction at a retail store. I imported the receipt into Wave and it's now sitting in my transaction log with the account "Owner Investment / Drawings".…

  • When recording that an invoice has been paid via the bank entry, Wave doesn't recognise the invoice because the currency conversion has delivered a different amount in the bank. I can record payment directly on the invoice but then I am forced to delete the bank payment or risk having two entries for the same payment. Any ideas on how else to reco…

When I go to Data Export and choose receipts, it only includes images of each of my receipts, but none of the details such as Notes. Additionally, I see that when a receipt is uploaded, a transaction is created that is linked to the rec…

I've searched for articles but none of…
