What's New
@ Passport
PBS Version 12.06.03 is here!
The PBS v12.06.03 update is available for download from the  FMS site . Many new features and enhancements have been added to v12.06.03..
Sales and Use Tax Solution
"Whether they are payroll taxes, sales taxes, or value-added taxes, taxes are a problem — a problem to track, a problem to calculate, and a problem to report. With the Supreme Court’s South Dakota v. Wayfair decision last year, taxes are becoming even more onerous." - Accounting Today

In response to all the changes happening in the sales and use tax area, Passport has begun to enhance the capabilities of our accounting software to support your new sales and use tax collection obligations.

Our current sales and use tax capabilities are good, but, with the expanded requirements post-Wayfair, we know that many of you will need improved tools and we’re creating them.

Best Kept Secrets of PBS
Did you know that Shift/F12 allows you to switch from Character to GUI (graphical user interface) or GUI to Character on the fly? This allows heads-down data entry at keystroke speeds, but also allows the much-improved navigation of the Windows environment available in the “Options” menu with multiple selections of items from that list, a true benefit of PBS GUI. If you are using PBS AP to select vouchers for payment in the GUI screen you know what an improvement this represents.

Our Favorite Spring Salad
Arugula Salad with Olive Oil, Lemon, and Parmesan Cheese
Since arugula is one of the garden's first yield of the season, this has become a popular recipe at the office. And it's actually great all year long,

2 bunches arugula, washed, dried, and torn
1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
1/2 lemon, juiced
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
A chunk of Parmigiano-Reggiano

In a serving bowl, drizzle the arugula with the oil, squeeze in the lemon juice, and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Toss until well mixed and taste for seasoning. Use a vegetable peeler to shave thin pieces of Parmigiano over the top.
