Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) on your Hosted account has become mandatory on 15 May 2024 and you will be MFA challenged once in a 24 hour period per device when logging in.

Don't worry though, setting up MFA for Reckon Accounts Hosted is really easy! πŸ™‚


Login to Reckon Accounts Hosted. If you haven't setup MFA yet, you will see the below message to start your setup. Click Next.

⚠️Please note: If you use your Reckon Accounts Hosted login credentials to also sign-in to the Reckon Portal (for sending your STP submissions for example), then you'll see an Enable MFA button instead. Simply click Enable MFA and you'll use the the same pre-existing MFA that is already setup from your companion Reckon Portal account so you won't need to go through the setup MFA process.


You have the option of setting up MFA either via an authenticator app or SMS.
