Thomson Reuters Tax & Accounting Australia acquires Cleardocs

We are pleased to announce that yesterday Thomson Reuters acquired Cleardocs Pty Ltd. Thomson Reuters is the world's leading source of intelligent information for businesses and professionals. Cleardocs will be aligned with the Tax and Accounting business in Australia.

You can be sure of business as usual throughout the transition:

  • serving your needs will remain our highest priority. The same people at Cleardocs will be running the business, maintaining the site, and responding to your calls and emails; and
  • importantly, the arrangements with our lawyers at Maddocks will continue just as they were.

We are delighted by the opportunity the acquisition represents for you, for Cleardocs, and for Thomson Reuters.
