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 is referred to as a single site license.

Tally creates an account using the e-mail ID provided during license activation. You can use this account for all future communication and licensing activities, such as configuring, reactivating, surrendering, and updating. The license is valid for a lifetime. However, to receive the latest product updates, you have to renew TSS once a year.
