Three reasons to try Wave instead

Wave has free, unlimited invoicing and accounting

That’s right: 100% free. $0/month. No credit card required to sign up. And unlimited means you'll never worry about choosing the right package, or creating a new account to upgrade.

Free doesn't mean fewer features

Just because Wave is free doesn't mean you won't get access to powerful, professional software. Unlike other tiered accounting software options, every feature is available from the minute you create your free account.

Set-up is quick and easy

We don’t believe in trials or demos to get started. You can just create your free Wave account, set up your business in minutes and see for yourself.

"Wave definitely saves me anywhere from one to two hours a week. The invoice tracking is excellent and the reporting for year end is super, super helpful—I can just run off a couple of reports, send them to my accountant...it’s a three button process at the end of the year.”
