Help requested to make my bookkeeping solid.
I am already with Wave since 2018 but due to severe handicaps and half year of homelessness I have never been able to consolidate my information in Wave from previous platforms and such.
Brief background info
1. Went from Paypal -> N26 -> Transferwise (And now using Wave to consolidate payments across those 3).
Expenditure that I make for my handicaps are in fact considered business costs since a healthy version of me wouldn't have them and thus have no place in the household booklet.
I have had a bookkeeper but she refuses to work with Wave because it is not organized enough.
I am using the bookkeeping of Wave for business related to my handicap (i.e. public speaker and such) however until now I have not made any sales.
Due to fiscal disputes (to which a few thousand euros are on the line in about a week's time of writing) I am forced to do it myself but I am not a bookkeeper myself. And since my bookkeeper refuses to use Wave I am ought to do it myself.
Now I am not a bookkeeper and most likely have made mistakes of which I am now stuck and I need help.
What are my problems?
I want all income (which are my own savings) to be seen as a 'loan' to my company. I made a difference between myself as a person and me as a business. I have this currently set up like this:
However the ones with account 'NOPPP (= NOP PayPal) I can't change account without errors:
I did try but it does not show up 'owners loan'
A lot of expenses I made on my bookkeeping come from the 'balance' which to me means that I topped up first from person (private) -> business (NO) as 'owners loan' and then I could spent as business the money.
To display this in my statements (and yes I can go into the negative because that shows how much the business still owes me as person) I went with the 'cash on hand' setting for the expenses paid from the 'balance' of the business:
However, the reconciliation does not like in the slightest what I do so it gives me a lot of error messages:
My goal is to display that all 'top ups' are in fact 'owners loans' and that all expenditure is from the balance of 'business'. How to do that without upsetting Wave infrastructure?
I had a few virtual assistants in the past to help me do stuff when I was bedridden due to my handicaps. Alya Salah was one of them. Anyway I want in the transactions screen to change the title of the transaction (at least get rid of the names and add an invoice number or so to it). I want to vendor her as 'Alya Salah' and then still make use of the search so all of her invoices would come up. But that is not the case as the search does not look on vendor tags:
So how can I circumvent this problem without having to put her name in the description?
To the transactions, I want to add a PDF attachment because it is not always clear from the get-go in the description nor notes what exactly I have purchasd.
I am exceptionally well aware that I made a LOT of mistakes in the software. I need help in the form of screenshots or ideally screen captures to help fix my mistakes.
It comes down to that I am looking for a way of working (system or method) in Wave that addresses the 3 problems above as well as:
- Allows me to see how much my business owes to me as a person
- From the transactions, I need to make invoices of them (because they are going to be proof to submit to the tax office for the fiscal problem)
Is there anybody willing to dedicate his efforts to help me out? I would be very very grateful.
P.s. If payment is required then I am able to pay up to 2% of my monthly income one-off for the help. However, I work on the basis of successfully completing work first prior to payout.
I am not sure if I get notifications of this group so if please e-mail me at '[email protected]' if allowed by Wave.
