How to add a new business to your Wave account

If you have more than one business, Wave allows you to maintain each business individually within one Wave account. Here's how you add another business.

  1. Click your business name in the top left corner of your screen.
  2. Click Create a business.
  3. Fill in the fields under Create a business;
    1. Enter your company name.
    2. Select a business type and organizational type.
    3. Fill in your country and business currency.
  4. Click Save to complete the process.

Once you've added your new business, it will appear in the drop-down menu next to the Wave icon in the top left of your screen, along with your other businesses and your Personal tabs. 

Multiple businesses vs multiple Wave accounts

Each business profile represents a separate, individual business, which isn’t linked to the other business profiles in your Wave account. A single Wave account can be used to manage multiple business profiles within it.

You can have multiple Wave accounts, as long as you have multiple email addresses that can be used to sign up for, and log in to, each new account. Multiple Wave accounts are separate accounts, which do not have access to business profiles on another Wave account (unless they have been added to the business as a User). They use different email addresses to log in.

Each individual email address can only be associated with, and used to log in to, one Wave account at a time.

Business profiles created in separate Wave accounts can only be accessed through the original Wave account. They can’t be moved between Wave accounts, and multiple business profiles can’t be combined into one profile.

How do I switch between Wave accounts?

To switch between Wave accounts, you’ll need to sign out from the account you’re currently logged into, before you can sign in to the alternative account. To sign out:

  1. Click your business name in the top left corner of your screen.
  2. Click Sign out.

You’ll then arrive at the Wave Sign in page, where you can sign in to your other Wave account.
