Wave Accounting

Wave Accounting

Wave looks interesting. I signed up for a free account and it seems this accounting program could work very well for small to medium sized business. I like that you can use it from any computer that has internet connection.

Wave makes it easy to be your own boss. Just do what you’re good at, and lean on Wave’s smart online software for help with invoicing, accounting and payroll.

Do all your accounting and bookkeeping, quickly and easily, and never pay a cent. Real double-entry accounting that actually makes sense to non-accountants.

Wave does not track inventory so it is not for everyone.

QuickBooks

(paid software)

I use QuickBooks simply because I have always used QuickBooks and I don’t want switch to another program. There would be a learning curve for the staff and we have many automated reports and services that could be a problem to change. However, if I had known then what I know now… I certainly would have done things differently.
