This article is applicable to Payroll by Wave in both Canada and the U.S.
Wave makes it easy to let others help run and manage your payroll. You can give access to a trusted individual – an accountant, a bookkeeper or a business partner, for example – by inviting him or her to be a guest collaborator. Inviting a guest collaborator from the Payroll section means that person will be able to access and make changes to the Payroll and Reports sections of your Wave account.
Note: If you would like the guest collaborator to have access to your other accounting information, you will have to send a separate invitation.
- Click on the Settings option in the left menu then click the Payroll Collaborators under the Payroll heading.
- Under Invite a Guest Collaborator, enter the email address of the person you want to collaborate with and click Invite.
Your guest collaborator will receive an email with an invitation to collaborate with you. If the Guest collaborator is not a preexisting Wave customer, he or she will receive instructions to create a password. The email address you sent the message to and the new password will give them access to your payroll.
If your Guest collaborator already has a Wave account, he or she will log into Wave as usual, but will be able to see your payroll as well as any other businesses connected to the Wave account.
Ending or canceling guest access
If you would like to terminate your guest's access, go to the same guest collaborators screen. Under Owner and Guest Collaborator you will see your guest's name. Click the "X" icon to the right of your guest's name. You will be asked if you would like to remove your guest. Click Remove and that guest will no longer have access.
