Easy, free accounting software for your small business

Wave is made for you: the small business owner, the freelancer, the entrepreneur, the consultant, the contractor. We built Wave for everyone who is managing their business finances, but probably doesn’t have any training in technical things like accounting and payroll. All the tools in your Wave account are jargon-free and easy to use.
