NetClient CS (Net Client) is a web-based portal that allows clients to securely share their confidential documents with their RKL service providers. NetClient enables you to easily access tax documents and financial statements created by RKL, as well as upload documents that you’d like to share with your client service provider.

Multi-factor authentication is a second layer of security required by online service providers to protect your data. New in 2022, Thomson Reuters, the maker of NetClient CS, is requiring multi-factor authentication for all users for added security protection.

If your NetClient CS account is locked, you should have received an email from “email@example.com” (you may need to check your spam, junk, and/or blocked email).
• The email should include a link to unlock your account.
• If you do not click the unlock link in the email, or you did not receive an email, then your account will be locked for a 24 hour period.
This setting is generated by Thomson Reuters. RKL does not have the ability to unlock accounts, or change the account lock time period.
