Tax & Accounting Plans to Expand Online Software Solutions with Agreement to Acquire Acclipse
With this planned acquisition, Wolters Kluwer Tax & Accounting will furthermore expand and complement its existing offering of advanced information and software solutions, including cloud-based solutions, for accounting firms and corporate finance professionals in the region. Acclipse will become part of the division's Asia Pacific-based business, which goes to market as CCH, a Wolters Kluwer business.

"This acquisition will respond to the growing demand from accounting firms for genuine cloud-based software to support a 24/7, value-added service to clients during lowering cost of ownership. We firmly believe that cloud computing has the potential to transform how accountants work with their customers," he said.
The acquisition of Acclipse will complement Wolters Kluwer 2011 acquisition of Business Fitness New Zealand, a provider of practical content and workpapers to accounting firms, to standardize many of the common processes for compliance work.
"CCH knows that accounting firms are trusted advisers to SMEs. The Acclipse suite, which was designed from the ground up to help accountants better service their customers, is at the heart of what we do. CCH will now be better placed more than ever to leverage our deep subject-matter expertise, global presence, rich content assets and robust innovation platforms to help accounting firms work hand-in-hand with their SME customers, and ensure 'true collaboration'," he said.
"When combined with CCH's outstanding content, Acclipse's cloud-based accounting solution will give CCH a in a class by itself offering - a fully integrated suite of software, workpapers, templates and checklists, deep innovation content and subject-matter expertise. We're calling this offering CCH iFirm - the all-embracing firm in the cloud."
