    Hi Charlotte,
    Is anyone else experiencing issues connecting to bank account information to sync recent transactions? Or is it just me?

    G'Day from Down Under Charlotte,

    Thanks for the welcome.

    Been using WAVE for over a year since leaving another high profile Cloud product in 2017. We are a little 'different' in Australia but we can make our strange Tax System work. Be interesting to know how many Aussies are on here?

    Running a small business is made easy with WAVE, Grouse (excellent)!!

    I'm having recent issues connecting to my bank also. Wave tech support suggested that I export from my bank and import manually. Hopefully it'll get fixed soon.

  • JessicaJayJessicaJay Member Posts: 2

    HI I am also experiencing issues connecting my bank account. This has been going on for a good while now.

    Additionally, when trying to gain access to my online bankingn via desktop, the bank says my account temporarily unavailable for 10 minutes due to log in attempts so close together. Banking app working fine on my phone.

    Hi, anyone know how to close the accounts/financial statements for the prior year, so there is no adjustment made in the prior year? This is because the prior year financial statements has been audited, and it is to prevent adjustment in the prior year. And this will effect the financial statements balance audited.

  • SamdSamd Administrator Posts: 557 admin

    Hey @aein. At the moment Wave doesn't have a year-end close function, but operates on rolling balances, with all past data remaining editable. Other accounting platforms don't allow you to touch historical data, but in Wave, you can pull up reports and make adjustments at any time. This means that your previous years never really "close". All that happens at year-end is that current year earnings get zeroed and added to previous year earnings.

    At the start of your new fiscal year, you will see your new previous year earnings balance, fresh income and expense account balances, and your usual bank account balances.

    What Wave doesn't do is put those amounts under a common account, such as retained earnings, that you can post transactions to. If you want your previous year income/loss to roll forward into retained earnings, you will need to manually do this. Here's how:

    1. Run an income statement for the year. This will give you all of your income and expense final balances.
    2. Save this statement in excel or a PDF so you have all of the balances saved.
    3. Click Accounting, then Journal transactions. Click Add transactions.
    4. Enter the balances as opposite of how they appeared on your income statement.
    5. Note that the amount of Net Income on the Income Statement matches the amount of the debit to Owners Equity.

    This could get confusing, so if you are concerned about your year-end balances and need some professional accounting help, you might want to get in touch with a professional accountant, which we always recommend :)
