Ernst & Young LLP has acquired the corporate tax management consulting firm Atlas Service Link LLC.

Headquartered in Dallas, Atlas provides an integrated approach to enhancing tax data management, technology optimization and process re-engineering initiatives for multi-national companies.

Global tax reporting and compliance burdens continue to increase significantly as a result of tax law changes, IFRS adoption/convergence, and Uncertain Tax Position reporting requirements. Atlas focuses on assessing and making recommendations about global tax technologies, as well as designing operational processes to improve the benefits of any technology suite.

Atlas founders Tony LaBove and Travis Fox were previously with Ernst & Young LLP and return with an understanding of the firm’s organization and culture. “We’re thrilled to welcome Tony and Travis back to EY,” Kate Barton, the EY Americas vice chair – Tax Services, said in a statement. “Adding Atlas strengthens our leading Tax Performance Advisory offerings, helping companies improve end-to-end business processes that drive tax performance.”
