Pause your Wave Payroll account

To better serve businesses and enable greater flexibility, Wave offers the ability to temporarily pause payroll.

When you update your subscription to limited access, your Wave Payroll account continues to run at a reduced price per month. On this plan, you’ll still be able to access important business information and support, without running payroll.

You can temporarily pause your Wave Payroll account by following these steps:

    1. Log in to your account at waveapps.com.
    2. Click Settings.
    3. Under the Payroll heading, select Billing.
    4. Click Cancel Payroll Subscription.
    5. Select Switch my Subscription.
    6. Update Subscription Preferences (i.e. how long will you pause payroll for).

When you switch your subscription to limited access, you will continue to have full access to all payroll features until the end of the month you update your subscription in. After that, your payroll subscription will change to limited access.

If you need to update your subscription payment method while the switch to limited access is pending, you can resume your subscription to make the change. When completed, you can switch back to limited access.

Resume your Wave Payroll account

You can resume payroll by following these steps:

      1. Log in to your account at waveapps.com.
      2. Click Settings.
      3. Under the Payroll heading, select Billing.
      4. Click Resume Subscription.

You can also resume payroll at any time directly from the Run Payroll page by clicking the Go to Billing button.

When you resume your payroll subscription, you will have full access to running payroll immediately. Regular payroll pricing will resume automatically. A prorated amount will be billed upon resuming payroll.
