Leading provider of tax and software services Ryan LLC has reportedly acquired Australia-based R&D tax incentive and government grants consultancy, TCF Services. The acquisition is set to escalate Ryan’s position in the international market while extending its service offering for Australian companies involved in R&D activities.
Sources close to the matter confirmed that the deal will also add value to Ryan’s clientele base, which is anticipated to benefit from the company’s inclusive suite of global tax solutions.
According to Ryan’s President of European and Asia-Pacific Operations, Jon C. Sweet, TCF Services’ advanced as well as unique research and development credits practice is ideal for Ryan’s clients operating in Australia.
