  • I find these gratuitous limitations irritating. Why would Wave block the ability to change account type for cash / bank? Suppose a bank account is restricted for some reason (say, guarantee on a bond) and I no longer want to show it as a liquid asset. I can't change this because Wave think it knows all the answers.

  • WAVE, Develop your own bank connections first! The WaveApp's weakest and most annoying deficiency is bank imports. Capital One does not import, Hancock Bank, does not import, Chase is two-three days behind with the 'new' integrator. STOP and fix what features you have that are broken! Please. The bank connector company needs to add to their c…

  • I would love to hear from others, it seems that every time someone posts things that would make Wave more useful...someone from the Wave Team replies..."Hey, that would be a great feature, We currently don't offer that but I will bring it up with our team" Some of these great member suggestions have been asked as far back as 2018!!! I ge…

  • I am migrating all of my documents into Wave from old book keeping software. I have a huge collection of PDF and JPG images of my receipts. Is there a way to bulk upload these files on the receipt upload page? I can't seem to drag and drop one or multiple files onto the page, copy and pasting only does one at a time, and when I click the "Upl…

  • Hi I just noticed that the last time my accounts were updated was about 4 weeks ago in Wave. I also don't see the balance any longer like I used to on the dashboard. Where is that balance now located and how can I force Wave to update my account? THANKS!

  • Hi, I'm new to Wave and accidentally added 2 credit card accounts that I don't use. I have several accounts with this bank so don't want to delete the bank. There are no transactions imported for these cards and I have the toggle off for both but they are still showing under transactions, credit cards list. Can I delete them?

  • Why only a portion of the income that is entered shows up on the P&L Report?

  • In this scenario, there are 3 companies: 1. Manufacturer 2. Agent 3. End user/final payer Manufacturer is not licenced to sell in the end user's geography, so bills End User through Agent (which holds appropriate licence to sell). Example: * End user invoiced $100 by agent * End User pays $100 to Agent, for which the Agent earns $30 commission * …

I captured the purchase and improvement costs in an asset account but do not know what transactions to use to account for the sale of the property correctly so the income reflects on my Profit/Loss statement and I properly reconcile t…

    Hi-- I have been using Wave for a couple of years. It is exactly what I was looking for. I just wanted to make a post as I have seen a few people making suggestions as they would like it more like Quickbooks. I have used Quick books , which is a great product if that is what you are looking for. I use Wave because Quickbooks is NOT what I am l…

  • Hello, I'm from India and I only use the basic transaction entries feature along with basic P&L and Balance Sheet reports. I don't need any Reconciliation/Payroll or such features. So, after the recent announcement of Wave only serving users from US and Canada, I'm wondering if I can still continue to use Wave in the future. I've tried more…

  • Hi everyone, I am an accountant wanting to use WAVE for churches - this way I can offer low-cost service to those small churches that cannot afford a full-service accountant. Is this a good platform and can I make as many business accounts (churches) as I need in my account? Thanks Craig

  • How can I categorize a deposit transfer to one of my accounts from a bank account that cannot be linked to my Wave? The funds were transferred to me from an bank account which does not belong to me or my business, hence my inability to link it in Wave and represent it as the source from which the funds came from in the transfer. The funds transfer…

  • I'm looking to open a small business checking account for a business I'm starting. Which banks integrate best with Wave? Anyone have experience with Novo, Aslo, BlueVine or Radius Bank? I don't plan on much cash usage so would prefer to be 100% digital and online. Thanks in advance for any recommendations.

  • Hi. I have a stack of refunds and at least for a couple of them that are within 90days, the refund option isn't available? I find the refunding of sales enormously tiresome and pathetic in this app. I love it for everything else, but its so asinine in its design. Also asking random strangers to access my acocunt to issue refunds form greater tha…
