Alerts and notices

To help strengthen security for your firm's sensitive Thomson Reuters account information - access information found on the Manage Firm page of our website is restricted to only your firm's Licensee or Firm Delegate. This includes items such as reviewing or updating your firm's license PIN or demographic information. What are the Licensee or Firm Delegate roles?

The Thomson Reuters – Tax & Accounting Business (Thomson Reuters) uses certain roles to define the relationship between Thomson Reuters and its Clients for Software products, such as the roles of Licensee or Firm Delegate. Licensee or Firm Delegate serves as account administrator and has legal right to the Client data entered in the software. A Licensee or Firm Delegate is responsible for managing the Client relationship with Thomson Reuters, including notifying Thomson Reuters of any firm demographic or name changes, managing security requirements, and responsibility for data entered in the software.

Your firm's application licensing determines if you are assigned a Licensee or Firm delegate. Based on your application licensing, your firm is assigned one or the other, you cannot have both a Licensee and a Firm Delegate. For questions, please send a message to our Customer Support team at or for immediate assistance a live chat option is available.

Internal notes

If the firm Licensee or Delegate needs to reset their password and has attempted all recommendations on Resetting your CS Web account password, we require a letter on company letterhead explaining why they cannot change the password and that we need to change it for them. Once the User Services representative receives the letter, forward it to the the Customer Support Resolver by emailing the letter to Customer Service TRTA and request the password reset. The CS Resolver will generate a new password and communicate it to the representative, and they will communicate it to the customer.

Representatives cannot share the PIN with anyone at the firm, including the Licensee/Delegate.
