Did you see the announcement that beginning June 1, Financial Analysis CS software – a component of the CS Professional Suite – is available free to accounting firms to help them advise their clients? Hats off to Thomson Reuters Tax and Accounting. Whether it’s a strategic marketing move or a response to the recession, I like the fact that TR once again put itself on the line by helping the accounting profession. This shows loyalty and a continuous commitment to helping us grow our practices. According to the news release, accountants can use Financial Analysis CS to “analyze client financial data, compare performance against similar businesses or industry standards, and provide clients with detailed, easy-to-follow reports.” The software also offers the option to subscribe to information available from the Risk Management Association.
