  • Hi, I have a cottage rental business, which has a personal use aspect to it. So, in my jurisdiction, I need to apply an appropriate expense rate to operating expenses, and sales tax ITCs. Determining this rate is something I would do at the end of my tax reporting period, and then apply it across the various operating expenses and sales tax acc…

  • Hi, I having difficulty understanding why I'm seeing the figures that I'm seeing in the Sales Tax Report. When I run the report, I expect the Sales Subject to Tax figure to be equal to income for the same period in the P&L report. However, I found it to be higher. I'm failing to understand how this can be the case. I do have some refunds…

  • I've just sat down to do my last quater's accounts. The first time I've really got to use Wave since the update The ability to sort transactions by amount in acounting has gone! Why would you get rid of this Wave? You can only sort by date now, more or less useless in ths context. The best way I found to go through my accounts is to enter…

  • Hi all. I am a new consultant that just incorporated and I recently started a contract with a client. I am new to being a business owner and know nothing about accounting. I'd like to list off what I'm going to be doing and I hope someone can tell me if Wave can take care of these items. 1) I know that Wave can connect to my Business Bank Acc…

  • Hi, I am thinking of hiring a bookkeeper to help manage our Wave Apps. Are there precautions that I need to take to make sure that they can not access all the bank accounts and credit cards? Thank you.

  • Thank you, I've been switching owners and emails around my businesses and everything worked as expected, although I was a bit puzzled in the beginning, it still was an intuitive process, I did find my way around "owners" "administrators" connected stuff, etc. It went smoothly, and I am very very picky and hard to please. Thank you again.

  • Hi, I live in Australia and am relatively new to wave. I love how i can generate my own invoices and send them off to my clients with ease. I recently enabled credit card payments at the request of a few long term clients. Getting paid by these guys in a timely manner is important for my cashflow (and sanity). The invoices have been sent,…

  • I'm new to Wave but have looked everywhere and can't seem to find a way to filter receipts by customer. I have employees who bulk enter their travel receipts. I need to pull them up by customer in order to bill for reimbursement. Am I missing something?

  • The previous platform used to let me mark a group of transactions as "unverified", something really helped me in some of my processes. Now that you moved to the "reviewed/unreviewed", why did you remove the option to bulk unreview? Please, please, please, bring it back

  • I've recently photographed around maybe 100 receipts (in batches of approx 8-10) using the Android app, but after the first few were processed & uploaded successfully, processing seems to have stopped & I have the majority stuck in the 'PROCESSING' column, displaying 'Unknown Merchant' & 'Uncategorized''. I was able to manually proc…

  • Any chance there will be another filter option added to sort transactions by those missing receipts? It becomes very laborious to go through every transaction one by one to see what's missing a receipt. Thanks!

  • I have a client who wants to migrate to Wave. As captioned, it is a registered charity here in Hongkong. For receiving donations, the accounting is simple, Accounting > Transactions > journal entry takes care of the bank deposits from donors. I can even create a donor entry as a (heaven forbid) customer! BUT 1) How do I create a …

  • When we add receipts under purchases, there is no way to sort by name/date or filter by merchant name. This feature is available on the receipts app where you can choose the merchant name to filter. Can this be provided on the web version as well?

  • The changes to the transfers between businesses process (no longer being able to simply click and select transfer to company A, etc) has made Wave an nonviable accounting option for me now. I can't possibly do the multiple steps for every transaction (I have 3 businesses on 1 credit card and one bank account). I really don't want to switch but don…

  • Hello, I am facing a weird thing, in Cash Flow report, I am seeing fractions in the bills, although I did not input any numbers with fractions. When I open the transactions, I still see those fractions, once I open the bill I see a totally different number (the one I did enter, without fractions and a different value). I think it may be a bug but …

  • It's great to have visuals of the Cash Flow and the P&L on the dashboard. However, it's currently not possible to drill-down within the figure (e.g. by double-clicking on a bar/month to see the transactions within that month). It would help a lot to understand what's happening each month and compare months with the team.

  • Hi, Somebody know how to do this in Wave App? I can't find a way to create account under account, so that my end report could be much simpler, but i could still see details when I want. For example, in utilities account, I want to create under this account other accounts like electricity, gas, water. Or like taxes account, there are city taxe…

  • Why do all transactions automatically get added to your business? Most other accounting software doesn't add them until you review/verify. This is pretty unfortunate when your bank accounts aren't 100% dedicated to the business, or when you need a bit of time to run a transaction by your accountant. It's hard to get a snapshot of your business …
