The right software helps business owners quickly categorize transactions and generate financial statements. These include cash flow reports, balance sheets, profit and loss statements, and expense breakdowns.

Accounting software like Wave can also seamlessly connect with your bank accounts so you can automate tasks like recording transactions and generating reports. This can help you save time and make financial decisions quickly.
