I am a new small business owner; our company is a year and a half old. Everyone insisted I use Quickbooks. I paid people to teach me, my accountant had to spend extra time sorting out my mistakes, it crashed many, many times, I had to upload the software from them when my disk would freeze, my numbers never matched and many features did not Quickbooks. I found Wave, and I LOVE it. It's all extremely common sense. It's a complete lifesaver (and business-saver) for me. Thank you!
I just wanted to say a quick "Thanks!" for the accounting software. I've been using Quickbooks 2010 Simple Start since it came out. Running my own IT repair business has difficult. Especially finding the time to be in front of the right PC that has the printer hooked up and my data stored in a safe place. Now, I can rely on your organization to maintain my records and email my invoices. I don't need a secretary and I can keep things minimal. I love the integration features and my thanks to you for the simplicity, ease of use, design and features your website has to offer.

I had just bought the dreaded QuickBooks, but hadn't busted open the packaging. That night I found Wave and I felt like I saw the light. My bank account was joyful that I saved $250 by returning the software.
Hello, I just wanted to let you know that we started using Wave Accounting yesterday, and already I am loving it. The fact that it is free is a plus, but the interface is very easy to use and I appreciate the reports options and being able to export them to PDF or Excel. I thank you for your program, and will continue to use it above Quickbooks and Peachtree for its simplicity and design. Thanks!
