H&R Block recently completed an acquisition of New River Innovation, developer of tax-issue resolution software Beyond415.
Greensboro, N.C.-based New River Innovation will become a part of the H&R Block organization and will no longer offer Beyond415 commercially, according to a statement from Block.
The announcement comes on the heels of the news that Xero and H&R Block formed a strategic alliance to offer Xero as the core small business online accounting platform in Block’s Small Business Program suite of services.
Founded in 2009, New River launched the Software-as-a-Service product Beyond415 in 2011 to help tax professionals solve their clients’ post-filing tax issues.
CEO and co-founder Alan Neely and vice president of product development Jim Buttonow expressed gratitude for customer support in an online message and included the following information to help with the transition:
• Account access will continue as normal through May 22, 2014
• Any time remaining on a subscription term as of that date will be refunded
• Easy data extraction will be available via one file download
• The customer support team will be available to help with the transition
