  • Hi everyone. I'm new here and have a question about how to enter short term securities into Wave. The nature of my business is purely active trading of securities (stocks, bonds, futures, forex, Nadex, etc). I'm in and out of the transactions anywhere from 1 day to a couple of months at the most. I do my trading in a TD Ameritrade account. I'…

  • Hello! Sorry, for this question. I am new here. I received a VAT refund in March. How can I treat it? Or, generally, how do we handle VAT and Tax payments or refunds. I tried the Transactions menu for the VAT refund. Under description I wrote VAT REFUND, I entered the amount, selected deposit, but what next? I could not fund the correspondent acco…

  • BC provides a small commission for collecting the PST and remitting to the government. So far Wave is recording the tax collected on the governments behalf on my sales and any payments I have made to the government. I end up with a balance owing to the government at the end of the year which is the amount allowed for this commission. How do I m…

  • Hello: I set up WAVE to send late reminders at 3 days past due. WAVE sent the reminders 1 day past due. I wanted to give a few days for checks to come in the mail. What did I do wrong?

  • Hi everyone! I have a question on Payment by Wave. By default, if a customer pay via Wave payment, the customer receipt will be recorded to the bank account "Payment by Wave". Where can I change the settings of the bank account? I would like to change it to my "Checking Account" instead. Thanks.

  • Sorry for what may be a crazy question (I'm not an Accountant on purpose). I have a one person consulting business and I often have expenses that I incur long before my invoices are paid. I'm living on a shoestring while I'm building so I don't have enough cash onhand to cover the expenses until I get paid. I have a business Checking account con…

And the moment no game-testers acquire a crack, we may fascination ourselves in many form of portable or Pc games, right? Our game testers are unable to do this any longer - a single in the class points out exact…

  • Hi I have a few expenses that I still pay for myself. So I create journal entries for each expense (debiting the expense account and crediting the following equity account: Owner Investment / Drawing account). Here is what I am not 100% sure about: The Owner Investment / Drawing account equity account is under Retained Earnings, instead of und…

  • We help students get into college. And on the side we volunteer and donate money to Youth In Government. So now that I got my donation receipt, how do I record it in Wave Accounting -- would it be an "expense"? If so, what is the "category" I should use? Lastly, how does Wave help me at the end of the year when I have to do my …

    Is there a way to export transactions linked to a customer? I set up our donors as customers and linked them to their donation in accounting transactions. At year end I'd like to send them each a report for tax purposes.

  • Hi, Absolutely brand-spanking new to Wave and not yet used it for invoicing, so still got much to explore. Just wondering if it is possible to issue invoices after you've received payment? I receive a small but regular sum each month for video lessons. This means I am paid per every minute watched by my students and therefore do not know how much …

  • I have a few cards which do this, and have been the bane of my existence ever since I started using Wave. Let's say the statement ending date is 2/18/20. There will be a handful of transactions from 2/17 and 2/18 which are not included in the statement, presumably because they download with the transaction date but the statement is determined by…

  • I have reconnected all of my bank connections and they are seem to be working (knocks on wood) although Chase keeps needing to be reauthorized. However, I still have a problem with one of them. All of the others were perfectly happy to use the existing account they were being imported into before, but for unknown reasons my mortgage insisted on …

I have done an April/May GST report and now need to do the June/July one. The problem is I have no starting balance appears!! Shouldn't it carry from from April 1 through to the end of Ma…

  • I have a California LLC for my day job (consulting). I am building a web-based membership site as well. I do not want to create another LLC because I don't want to pay the $800 minimum tax again, so I'm going to operate the online business as a DBA under the LLC. Within Wave, do I need to have open (and pay for) a separate bank account for the on…

  • Since the new design I am having troubles to split transactions as before. I am quite fine if Airbnb sends us one transaction and I just need to split it between the rental income and the fee. However if Airbnb sends 2-3 transactions together in one payment and I need to split it among 2-3 guests and their rental income and fees, I am lost as the …

  • I was trying to import CSV bank files. One file went great, with > 30 entries. The other one, with only 10 entries, only the latest 5 rows showed up . The earliest ones did not show up. Try changing the date format to YYYY-MM-DD as suggested in the forum with no improvement. Any suggestion welcome. Thank you Ben

  • I'm not an accountant I'm part of a not for profit which decide to use and since our books are so basic. I know it's an invoicing app, but occasionally we need to pay a bill for something. Can I do that and if so, where? It makes the banking link a bit pointless otherwise.
