  • Hi, my base currency is GBP. But I have a USD account with some dollars in it. I now want to transfer all the USD to the GBP account. So I create a transfer between the USD and the GBP account. I amend the amount received, and automatically get a gain/loos on currency exchange transaction as well as the transfer. This looks fine to me. The US…

  • I have more than one rental property and have set each up as it's own "company" for individual P/L reporting. However, they use the same bank account for management. Is there a way to link each "company" to one general bank account in the chart of accounts so the bank balance stays correct?

  • Newbie question: how can I go about syncing with Square to get raw sales values, prior to the 2.75% Square processing fee? As is, I only import my bank info, which includes the deposit from Square. This artificially lowers my sales figures by 2.75%, and I'm not sure how to fix this. Any advice on this?

    I am using Wave for a local Scouts group and a great many of our expenses are processed as reimbursements to the leaders when they give me their receipts. So, I'm wondering if using the Receipts App might be a good addition for us? I've had a play and it seems fairly easy to use, but I'm afraid the request for accounts and categories could scare …

  • In order to have good record-keeping I feel I need to add a Vendor to each transaction. However, since adding the Vendor is an additional step and slows down data entry, I am wondering If I should stop using the add vendor feature and only use it for important Vendors. Would be nice if the vendor could show up in-line with the rest of the transac…

  • Independent Contractors, working in CA, that live out of state, are now subject to a 7% tax. This is being withheld by the hiring company upon payment of invoice. How can I incorporate this into my ledger, as the invoice amount no longer matches the payment amount. I want to be able to track this tax as well.
