  • I wonder if someone can help me understand how wave is calculating vacation balances. I have a FT employee whose vacation policy is set to “4% of hours are accrued each pay period”. She’s worked with us since 2018. Her vacation balance shows as 133 as of Jun 30, 2020. That seems way too high, so I pulled a Wage and Tax Report and here is the ma…

  • Hello, Im a bit confused and concern with Wave showing 0.00 tax withholding when I run payroll. I'm paying myself through my business but can't get a grasp as to why this would ever happen. Has anyone else experienced this?

  • Hello, I have successfully created a Gift Card in the Chart of Accounts. Is there a way I can give a customer a money limit? So the customer can see how much they have left in the account when they have received an invoice.

  • As a small seasonal business owner, I need payroll to be flexible, robust, and ready on the go. That means changing payroll frequency, starting and stopping payroll as needed. And of course has to be simple with no waiting in a queue or going through a prolonged set up. It seems like the current industry payroll model is established by ADP, but…

  • Hello! I'm slightly confused in regards to tax payments and hoping someone can clarify for me!!! I am a sole proprietor where I elect to file my taxes as an S-Corp. I pay myself as an employee through Wave Accounting. It is to my understanding that Wave handles all of the tax payments, however, my accountant that files my annual tax return gave …

  • Hello, I'm trying to hold onto Wave however, there is no zap integration available between Wave and Gusto Payroll. Will this be available in the foreseeable future? I have no desire for Wave payroll as I have a plan with Gusto that also offers compensation/benefits services that Wave does not.

  • Does anyone know of any way to run an additional payroll, once my monthly payroll has been processed? I Ran and Approved/Posted December payroll last week. Later I realized I have some Employee Benefits (Medical Insurance premium payments) that I need to record through payroll (so they appear on my W-2). It looks like Wave has the option to recor…

  • I am new to Wave payroll. I would like to have my employees access to their paystubs. How do I do this? Do they need a wave account? What if they do not want one? Is there a way for me to print their paystub myself?

  • Hello, I have Wave doing my payroll. They are paying the US federal and state taxes from the gross payroll for the employee portion for me. But the 'Total Employer Tax Owing to Third Parties' (this is the portion the employee pays for taxes) is this not getting paid automatically by Wave? I assumed it was being taken care of?

  • Hi! We have been using Wave for a while now, and plan to upgrade to payroll processing and 1099 filings. We don't have any employees, so everyone is a contractor. Is there a way to create a recurring contractor payment if we know the payment every pay period? And, to ensure I understand the payroll fee, is it $35 per month base plus $6 per contra…

  • As a small business located in QC the payroll feature doesn't work (probably because of the language requirements). An integration like QuickBooks could potentially be a workaround. They basically use the a page (in wagepoint) to map account in wagepoint to those in Quickbook. (Image) Note: * Current understanding is that Wagepoint is used be…

  • For a couple payroll periods, I was mistakenly withholding state and local taxes from my employees. I never sent that amount to the state. How do I correct that in Wave so that the employee's W-2 will show $0 withheld for state and local taxes?

  • We started on wave payroll midway through the year. Despite importing our previous months numbers before starting our first payroll on wave, it seems like wave payroll doesn't adjust for changes to salaries correctly going forward. It merely calculates the monthly totals for new salary figures as if it were salary/12. Support has confirmed this.…

  • I wish I could "pre approve" payroll and schedule the day I want it to be processed. Our week ends on Friday, so I usually finalize hours anywhere from Saturday to Monday and then I have to remember to go back in and hit the button to "approve payroll" on Tuesday for pay day to be on Friday. If I hit the approve payroll button…

  • I'm trying to run my first payroll, but the one employee (me) doesn't show up in payroll. Message is that I have to add an employee in order to run payroll. The payroll dates are July 3 - 31. Payday is today, August 9. Employee's salary is active since July 1. I've checked setting several times, but I'm must be missing something.

  • Hi all, I'm looking at my Profit & Loss statement and I'm seeing that Wave is recording: Payroll Gross Pay + Payroll Employer Taxes + Payroll Salary & Wages as operating expenses. This means it shows the payroll amounts twice as an expense and this expense is duplicate. When I look at Payroll Gross Pay, it shows in the books as Journal…

This is because we have hired more people and have seasonal hires and realized that bi-weekly payroll makes more sense.
