New Payroll Health Care Report Released!
We have just released a new report for Pro Fund Accounting Payroll that provides you a way to see both the employer and employee health care contributions made during the year.
This report breaks down both the Employee Amount and Employer Amount for health care deductions that appear in box 12 code DD on your employee's W2s.
You can also run this report for a particular date range such as a single month if you wanted to see how much health care costs were for that particular month.

The report is titled Employer Health Care Contributions and can be found in Pro Fund Accounting under Reports>Payroll.
To obtain this report, please go to Help>Check For Updates in your Pro Fund Accounting software.
If you have any concerns or questions about this report please contact our support staff.

Customer and Vendor List Reports Updated!
We have just finished updating the Vendor List and Customer List reports in Pro Fund Accounting to include a status parameter for the vendor and customer statuses.
So now, you can run those reports and get a list of all of your active vendors or a list of all of your inactive vendors.

With that being said, the Vendor Labels Avery 5160 and the Customer Labels Avery 5160 have also been updated to include this new status parameter.

How to Take Screenshots On an Apple Mobile Device
For those of you who own an Apple mobile device, you may at times need to take a screenshot of whatever app that device is running.
This short tutorial will explain how to take a screenshot of anything on an Apple iPad, iPhone or iPod.

  1. To take a screenshot of any app running on your Apple device, press the Sleep button which is usually located at the top right hand corner of the device and the circle Home button at the same time.
  2. The screenshot is then saved in your device's camera roll, so you can make use of the image.

Taking screenshots on an Apple mobile device is pretty easy.
