Create and send customer statements

There are two types of customer statements you can create in Wave, Outstanding invoices and Account activity.

An outstanding invoices statement displays all unpaid invoices for the customer. They can view the invoices that are partially paid, unpaid and past their due date by clicking on the specific invoice. Your customers can use this statement to view the real time snapshot of their unpaid invoices with your business.

An account activity statement displays the details of all invoices, payments and refunds for that customer within the selected date range. This statement is useful to share a complete history of sales and payments with your customer for record keeping.
