Pros: Need I say more, it is FREE. For several years I have used WAVE mainly for invoicing and billing. One of the snazzy features on the invoice is the smart PDF button that allows client the ability to click and pay on the invoice. Quicker pay, better business. Another new add-on WAVE recently added was bank transfer option (ACH) for payments. The fee is 1% instead of the 3-4% for credit cards. WAVE does offer reports but gears toward small businesses or sole proprietors. The accounting features are limited compared to software such as Quickbooks or Xero. To set up the accounting, you'll need to be familiar with accounting. If you fully utilize the software, be sure to review the entries at least weekly to keep up and to ensure accuracy. Wave is set up to integrate your Paypal transactions along with importing your bank account(s). Payroll has been added too with features of direct deposit transactions and timesheets. I recommend using WAVE for small business, freelancers, and sole proprietors due to cost, invoicing, and accounting needs for service oriented businesses.

Cons: For billing, I wish WAVE offered a column for date and flat rate option. Sometimes the bank importing does not work, therefore, the accounting information may be inaccurate which could be costly for tax preparation and planning.

Overall: It's FREE and great for invoicing!

Pros: It lets me leave it alone! It does all the work for me! I don't have to check it every day or every month! I can spend a few hours before tax day every year with Wave, and I am super relieved to see it's been following along with my transactions, tracking and logging what I've done, linked the bank accounts, intuitively followed my suggestions on what charges go into what categories, etc. I travel full time too, so I have alot of random business transactions. Wave is perfect for my needs.

It's super intuitive, very easy, and it's FREE!

Cons: There's nothing not to like. Even someone like me, who hates accounting and hates doing taxes, hates checking on this stuff...even I don't mind my tax season with Wave. If it's made me not dread tax season, there's nothing not to love!

Overall: I own my own business. Wave has saved me every year with its quiet, in the background tracking. Every six months I worry that I should be doing more, paying more attention to my transactions and tracking them, then I open Wave...worried...but I see that Wave has it all under control. With a few clicks, I approve and categorize what I spent money on, what I paid my freelancers, etc. Then, I close it down and don't even think about it again for six months.

Wave lets me do what I do best-run my creative business. It handles the scary stuff-accounting and easy tax season.

Pros: Taking photos in app is really conveinient

Cons: The file organization leaves quite a bit to be desired. Once files are up and named there's little else you can do with them

Overall: I'm an independant contractor and Wave is great for tracking receipts, expenses, bills, and invoices. Of the apps and software I've tried, it's the best of the free options
