If you're a small business looking for an easy-to-use and free bookkeeping and accounting software then Wave Apps is an excellent option.
Wave's cloud-based bookkeeping software including invoicing, expense processing and integrations with payment processors for credit card payments.
Wave is an excellent option for the creative business owner but learning the intricacies of a new software can be overwhelming. Combine that with the overwhelm of dealing with accounting and bookkeeping terminology and process and getting your bookkeeping organised can seem out of reach.
You could muddle your way through Wave, wondering if you are doing the right things, if you are wasting time on inefficient processes and not adjust Wave to suit your business. Or you could take this comprehensive Wave Apps course and learning everything from setting up the right Chart of Accounts through avoiding duplicate transactions and how to deal effectively with transfers and still get your accounts to reconcile.
This course is intended for Australian sole traders whether you sell on Etsy or sell a service. It's been designed to cover the needs of creatives, artisans, artists and Etsy sellers as well as consultants, contractors and service business owners. If you're overwhelmed by your bookkeeping system then this course will help you to organise, streamline and automate using Wave. And best of all Wave Apps is free.
It is fully up-to-date with all of Wave's changes to the interface from October 2020.
