The acquisition will enable Thomson Tax & Accounting to enhance its software-as-a-service offerings through Web-based Financial Accounting Standard 109 compliance software, as well as FASB Interpretation 48 compliance modules and data collection workflow tools.

TaxStream is used by nine of the 10 largest accounting firms and one-third of Fortune 500 companies. The company's products facilitate compliance for multinational, publicly traded companies based in the U.S. and Europe.
