Thomson Reuters and TEI Renew and Expand Their Affinity Agreement

TEI and Thomson Reuters extend their exclusive affinity relationship to benefit in-house tax professionals.

Tax Executives Institute has renewed and expanded its relationship with the Tax & Accounting business of Thomson Reuters. TEI has selected Thomson Reuters as its exclusive affinity partner for tax information and workflow solutions.

"Thomson Reuters has long demonstrated its commitment to providing tax executives with the timely, accurate, authoritative, and cost-effective research, workflow tools, compliance and CPE solutions that are essential to TEI members in serving their companies," said David Penney of General Motors Canada, TEI International president. "The company’s commitment to addressing the corporate market’s evolving needs remains second to none. In the digital arena, in particular, Thomson Reuters has established itself as an industry leader with brands like Checkpoint® and ONESOURCE®." Penney noted that these factors, combined with Thomson Reuters ability to meet TEI members’ needs, contributed to TEI’s decision to extend and expand this long-term affinity relationship.

The affinity agreement provides TEI members with a range of benefits, including discounts on selected new tax information products, online CPE and professional education courses. Members also regularly participate in advisory boards to provide feedback on future product development. In addition, TEI and Thomson Reuters are collaborating on a program of webcasts which will be specially tailored to the interests and needs of TEI members. The webcasts will feature leading experts offering practical insights on a range of current issues and developments affecting in-house tax professionals.

“We are extremely pleased and honored to continue as TEI’s exclusive affinity partner,” said Steve Mendelsohn, managing director of Knowledge Solutions for Thomson Reuters. “Through our long-standing and close relationship with TEI, our Checkpoint and ONESOURCE teams take every opportunity to meet with and listen to TEI members in order to gain deeper insights into the issues and objectives that are most important to them. We work to incorporate these insights into our product and service offerings so that every experience with us meets our customers’ expectations.”
