NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - September 13, 2010) -  The Tax & Accounting business of Thomson Reuters recently added several titles onto Checkpoint, its industry-leading research platform serving more than half a million users. These latest additions, from the authoritative WG&L and WTE brands, are part of a full library of resources assisting professionals in multinational companies to understand tax, accounting, and economic issues facing them today.

Checkpoint is relied upon by 100 of the top 100 U.S. CPA firms, 95 of the top 100 U.S. law firms, and 93 of the Fortune 100 Corporations. New titles include:

  • WG&L's Analysis of IFRS1, First-time Adoption assists companies new to reporting financial statements under International Financial Reporting Standards. Topics covered include: opening balance sheet, provisions, elective and required exemptions from retrospective application of the standards, disclosure requirements, and consequences of IFRS adoption.
