License Editions and Options
TallyPrime is mindful of your unique business needs, and accordingly offers you various license editions, such as Silver or Gold, and license options, such as Regular, Rental, or Educational. You can select the best edition or option for your business based on the requirements.
Silver Edition (Single User): The Silver edition is a single-user license. Only one user can access the license at a time in a LAN environment. If another user has to access the same license, then you have to close all other instances of TallyPrime currently using the license.
Gold Edition (Multi-User): The Gold edition is a multi-user license. Multiple users can access the license at the same time in a LAN environment. You can use TallyPrime Server along with TallyPrime to manage the concurrent usage of company data. TallyPrime Server also provides a secure environment for your company data.
Regular: Using a regular license, you can use TallyPrime on your computer forever. When you purchase any edition of the product, you will get free product updates and TSS for a year. Thereafter, you have to renew TSS once a year to get continuous product updates and other services.
Rental: Using a rental license, you can avail the license for a certain period, such as one, three, or twelve months, and use TallyPrime on your computer. Thereafter, you can extend the rental period by renewing TSS, or you can buy a regular license.
Educational: In the Educational Mode, you can use TallyPrime on your computer, but with certain limitations. For example, you can enter data only for the 1st, 2nd, and final days of a month. However, you can use all the features of TallyPrime in this mode.
To manage licenses, TallyPrime has the concept of site licensing. A site refers to a single license of TallyPrime, TallyPrime Developer, or TallyPrime Server that has been installed and activated. You have the flexibility to choose between two types of site licenses: single-site and multi-site.
Single site: A single license of TallyPrime, TallyPrime Developer, or TallyPrime Server is called a single site. The licensing operations are managed by the administrator.
Multi-site: In multi-site licensing, more than one license of TallyPrime, TallyPrime Developer, or TallyPrime Server are activated on different machines or locations, associated to a primary account. Each site is given a unique identification by the user, which is called a Site ID.
