Single Site Licensing in TallyPrime

Once you purchase TallyPrime, you need to activate your license to enjoy the full benefits of this new and improved product. If you have a single license of TallyPrime, TallyPrime Developer, or TallyPrime Server, then it will be referred to as a single site.

After activating the license, an account will be created with Tally. You can use this account for all future communication and licensing activities, such as configuring, reactivating, surrendering, and updating. The license will be valid for a lifetime. However, to receive the latest product updates, you have to renew TSS once a year.
