  • I am able to print a customer statement but can anyone tell me how or where I can print a Vendor/Supplier Statement? In other words - a report that lists all the transactions relating to a Vendor for a selected date range showing opening and closing balance?

  • What is the correct accounting procedure for goods purchased for a client and charge a service fee? For example, I purchase $1000 worth of products for a client and I charge a fee for doing so. Say $200. The client must then pay me for the cost of the products plus my service fee.

  • Hi everyone, grateful if you can advise on this based on your experience: we registered a 2 partners LLC in DE in Oct 2019 which is treated as a Partnership by the IRS for Tax purposes. the LLC didn't receive any income in 2019 apart from few start-up costs that we have incurred (about USD400). I am quoting this from the IRS website: "Except …

  • This appears to have been asked by others, but the answers don't seem to make sense in my case - possibly my own lack of understanding. I use direct deposit for payroll. There is a Journal entry created for the full amount of the payroll (taxes, net pay, etc.). There is also an entry that is a withdrawal from the checking account that is cate…

  • Hi - how on Wave does one categorize income from royalty payments (e.g. from books published)? General sales or is there another more specific category? Thanks.

  • Hoping someone can clarify for me...... Payments received via wave into the Payments by Wave account do not seem to appear in the cashflow as an inflow.... They are however showing in profit .. So thinking as I do not link my bank accounts I may need to create a transfer to the appropriate chart of accounts account showing that Stripe as cleared…

    I signed up for wave some time ago and I guess I didn't specify dates for transaction import. I am now ready to get to work and I would like to start fresh with just January 2019 forward. How do I delete all transactions prior to Jan 1st?

    I'm using wave to collect club fees and need to be able to add 3 different 'products' to each invoice. I've set up all of the customers and uploaded them, but not sure how I add the 3 products in Google Sheets. I've tried duplicating the item name column (didn't work - just get the 3 dots when validating) and also using 3 separate rows under the …

  • Good day to you! Any new developments on the statement printing for clients~ or a way to suggest to clients a way around it. Is there a way to unlink the invoices and have a PDF of the statement? I know you are focusing on clients who are totally computer orientated- but there must be a way to placate non-techie clients?

  • I'm currently having a problem with the cashflow statement in Wave: The total cash inflow reported on the cashflow statement seems to be inaccurate as it is not equal to the sum of each cash inflow (which is also reported separately on the cashflow statement). Below is the cashflow report that I'm struggling with. It's quite odd for things to go w…

I am one of those advisors, and I have experience with small businesses, nonprofi…

  • These tips may be redundant but, because they persist, they bear mentioning: 1) Generate a business plan. You may know what you want but if you can't put pen-to-paper and articulate it.... how good is your idea. 2) Start small - start as a proprietorship. You do not need to incorporate right away. 3) Most people who incorporate online forget the s…

I currently am a photographer for small events throughout the week but the work seems to be coming more regularly and it’s work that I enjoy.

  • With 3rd quarter payroll taxes approaching and sales taxes at the same time, how are you preparing your clients? For those that have businesses, are your payroll taxes automated where your taxes are automatically being filed and paid or are you preparing your statments in a file to send to your CPA or bookkeeper?

  • Late last year, I decided to get into making beef jerky. I love the stuff, didn't really know what I was doing but figured it'd be a good idea for a Christmas gift, so I bought an upsetting amount of beef and got to testing. The jerky was a hit, I continued playing around with the recipe and started selling at a local farmer's market a couple of w…
