Attach PDF invoice to a Bill

idealdesignsidealdesigns Member Posts: 2

Basically I want to record expenses of let's say a yearly hosting plan I bought which I can deduct from my tax as busieness related expense.

In waveapps I create a Bill but with the bill I want to attach a PDF invoice from the hosting company, if a tax Audit happens I will provide the original invoice PDF and other related files, would be cool to embed attachments to a Bill

    Hi @idealdesigns. This is a great feature request here -- I definitely appreciate you taking the time to let us know how it would benefit you as well. With that said, we do not have any plans to allow for the option of adding an attachment in the bills section just yet, however, we could implement this on a future roadmap.

    This is a great feature. Quickbook and even slickpie uses it. It helps me keep track of even checks that I have been paid so I can have a visual of it instead of paper.

    I'd love this feature too. I use it a lot within Quickbooks.

    @Quickbooks @JeremyPhelps appreciate you chiming in and letting us know you're both interested in this feature - this is super helpful for our product teams!

    I'm also pinging this thread to request this.

    @ShawnMclean Thanks for leaving your +1 for this feature idea I'm curious if you'd be able to explain how this would change your workflow in Wave and why it might be an essential feature for us to consider? Leaving this level of detail will help our Product Team when they are considering what will be added to the Product Roadmap :)

    When I receive an invoice via email, I'd like to attach it to a bill so auditing is much easier.

    I don't have much stake in waves anymore though, I've moved to QuickBooks the past week. The lack of this feature was the final push along with a few other requests that have been suggested for years now.

    We would also find this feature request very helpful. Thanks for the consideration.

    This feature would be incredibly useful as well. @JordanD, since we are required to keep invoices and receipts as verification/justification of any deducted payment in the event we are audited. It seems a crucial thing that if we are electronically cataloging receipts for record-keeping, we should also be able to do so for bill-driven invoices. You allow it for small receipts, why not for what are generally the bigger ones?

    I make a receipt of the invoice so both the bill and the paid receipt appear in the transaction section as the same amount, then merge that receipt with the bill and can see them both together in one transaction.
    But I do agree, an invoice would be better attached to a bill, paid or not than a transaction already paid.

    In order to attach a receipt to a transaction which is downloaded from my bank account, i have scanned in the receipt and added it as another entry in my bank account and then I merge the 2 transactions.
    Am I doubling the transaction amount when I do this?
    Do I need to enter the expense with the receipt as a zero dollar amount?

    hey @2CasaElegante

    When a receipt and bank imported transaction are merged, the amounts are merged into one.

    Check out your account transactions report for extra confirmation.

    Definitely need the ability to attach an invoice to a bill and receipts to reimbursement requests and check images to payments. Perhaps after a year since this question was posted it has been put on the roadmap since it is such a basic need?

  • AlexLAlexL Administrator Posts: 1,529 admin

    Hey @mikew . Attachments have not made their way onto the roadmap yet I'm afraid. Thanks for bringing this up again though as a +1 to the feature!

    This would be a great feature.
