Great work. Keep it up.

Have been using wave for a while now. Truthfully Mainly because my old accounts program became too expensive.
Am I glad I looked around. This app with the invoice app plus the web has made my job a lot easier. I create a bill then merge the receipt with it. So now I create a bill from the receipts and merge them together. Then click on the bill, hey presto the receipt is attached. This also helps with finding receipts for things. No more rummaging around in boxes or storing in a different program like before.
Well done guys. I can’t wait for the estimate app to come out then all my business will be a lot easier on the move.

Great app

Great app that is easy to use and super useful! Would love to see an option added to enter your mileage and track it as numbers (45p per business mile). Also the camera could use some improvements as the quality of the pictures taken through the app is not great and can be tricky to read sometimes... It would also be good if we could take multiple pictures for each receipt in case they are very long or double sided.

VAT included

Great app - very useful to stop paper receipts getting lost/delayed reaching the accounts dept. The only thing I can moan about is when posting them to accounting it does not always include the VAT on the transactions page even when you have added the 20% on. It shows a grey ‘VAT’ icon but says vat included: 0 so having to manually override the amounts and save once I login to wave online. One to watch out for!
