The new Wave for small businesses

We’re super excited to finally unveil what we’ve been working on: an application that changes the way small business owners handle their accounting.

I know, I know… “accounting” and “excited” generally don’t fit too well together. But once you see what we’re up to, I think you’ll agree.

  • We built tools that minimize your manual entry and save you time.
  • Those tools are made for non-accountants. You don’t need 6 months of training to get up to speed with Wave. Most actions are as easy as dragging and dropping.
  • Wave is a complete accounting solution, if that’s what you need. Your accountant will love the reports and tools, even if you never use them yourself. If all you want to do is track your money in and money out, you can do that too.
  • With Wave, you can track your personal finances and your business finances all in one place. A lot of small businesses use the same bank accounts and credit cards for business and personal stuff. An accounting textbook might tell you not to do this, but we built Wave for you, not the textbook. If that’s your reality, Wave makes it easy for you.
  • Wave is free. There’s no “but.” Even if you use all the tools, every day, and create lots of invoices for hundreds of customers, you won’t need to pay a thing. You can find more details here.

We really look forward to hearing your feedback and answering your questions. If there’s anything we can do to help get you started, drop a note to our ace support team.

No more manual entry: By connecting Wave with your bank and credit card accounts, you may never need to manually enter an expense again. We crunched some numbers quickly and I think you can save a couple of hours every month just for inputting 100 transactions. You’ll save even more time on other tasks, like making sense of your money. (Click to enlarge.)

Smart number crunching—Wave does the work for you: We built Wave to be smart, so that it can do the heavy lifting for you. When Wave sees an expense — let’s say a book purchase from Amazon — the smart tools will automatically put it in the right place for you. The more you use Wave, the more it learns how you want your money to be handled.
