Internal notes


Firms are required to accept the Master Service Agreement (MSA) this year. There is no option to renew and not accept the MSA.

If the firm does not want to renew Practice CS, the Customer Service representative must update renewal plans, see Updating renewal plans in EMS. Properly updating renewal plans to NLU for all Practice CS modules will cancel the auto renewal.

Positioning tips for the MSA

While we acknowledge the MSA is a change, it's also a standard business practice for a company to periodically review and update their agreements. See the tips below for positioning the MSA.

  • The MSA provides a stronger framework for the amount of time we give for a renewal notice, and requests the client give us more time when they request to cancel a service.
    • The firm still has control over their renewal; they can renew before the expiration date, let the renewal happen automatically, or they can cancel the service before the expiration date.
    • If they'd like to change anything with the renewal (such as adding or removing products), they must manually renew online.
  • Further clarifies the amount of time available for billing disputes.
  • Provides the same agreement between all Thomson Reuters business units and all customers have consistency in how these terms operate.

Accessing MSA records in EMS

  1. Email the customer our New Master Service Agreement (MSA) and their renewal invoice. The MSA is available online.
    • The version of the MSA that the licensee needs to be signed by the licensee is found here.
    • The version of the MSA that the licensee needs to be signed by a firm delegate is found here.
  2. Explain the firm's designated licensee or Firm's Delegate will need to agree to the terms by signing the new terms. They must indicate who the Firm Delegate is, if it is a corporate licensed product; sign, date, and provide the firm ID to confirm the firm wants to sign up for auto renewal.
  3. Inform the customer to indicate the last four digits of the method of payment we have on file to use as the renewal card for future renewals.
  4. Designate a Renewals card in EMS.
  5. Have the customer fax or email the signed MSA and renewal in to Customer Service using the information on the renewal solicitation.
  6. Update the auto-renewal screen in EMS.
  7. Print the signed renewal documentation to Order Team via GoFileRoom.
  1. Open the firm in EMS
  2. Click Firm.
  3. Click Automatic Renewal at the bottom of the list.
  4. Click the product family under Renewal Campaign.
