Three reasons to try Wave instead


1. Wave has free, unlimited invoicing and accounting.

That’s right: 100% free. $0/month. No credit card required to sign up.

2. 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.

3. 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.
