Wave is the accounting software that I use for my own business. Even though, I perform some work for clients in Quickbooks (Quickbooks is definitely the leader in accounting software on the market and has been around for many years!), I choose Wave for several reasons.
- It is free! No, really it is completely free! The accounting software is free but they make money through extra optional services such as payment processing and payroll services.
- It is designed for solo entrepreneurs and very small businesses with one to nine employees. I love programs that are customized for me without a ton of stuff that I do not need.
- It is simple to use and quick and easy to setup. It is so easy to navigate and has great customer service through a chat feature.
Quickbooks is still the best choice for larger businesses and those that need a more comprehensive accounting option as well as retail businesses, but for now, Wave is the best option for me! Check it out if you think it will benefit you too.
