Over 90% (estimated) businesses in India use Tally.ERP 9 and earlier versions. This gives us a big responsibility to ease its availability. Your feedback has reached us –we hear you!
Tally.ERP 9 is now available in a rental model. Simply put, you can now pay per quarter or even per month of use.
Costing just 10% per quarter (around 3% per month), we believe ALL your needs have been addressed:
If you are presently operating in an environment where Capital Expenses are limited, the
rental model allows you to move over to an Operating Expenses mode
There is sometimes the need for an additional license for short term use:
- A project site that will be operational for a few months
- Occasional use on a notebook while travelling
- An off-site festival/promotional sale
For Silver edition sites, the need for additional users:
- During audits or unanticipated peak loads, you can rent a Silver or Gold edition while your
regular work continues as usual
- During initial implementation, such additional rental licenses can be used to punch in old
entries, while you take full advantage of Tally.ERP 9 from day one for current business
As a Tally education partner, rental opens up a new world of convenience:
- With government and NGO thrust on vocational training programmes to generate
employment, the demand for Tally.ERP 9 training is growing. Now, rent Tally.ERP 9 for
the duration of the training programmes and build the cost into operating expenses.
There is no need to invest in hundreds of Tally.ERP 9 licenses
As a supplier of PCs on rent:
- You can carry options for business ready PCs with Tally.ERP 9 pre-loaded
As a PC manufacturer or dealer:
- Offer your business buyers a great experience with Tally.ERP 9 available out-of-the-box,
at a low start-up cost to you and to your customer
- An extremely simple process to acquire, renew or migrate to a perpetual license, makes Tally.ERP 9 - Rental a great experience.
The price for rental follows our Power of Simplicity® philosophy:
The price of rental is 10% per quarter (3 months) of the regular (perpetual) license price of the corresponding edition, and 1/3rd of this per month.
For Tally.ERP 9 Gold (India/SAARC) the product price is INR 54,000. Therefore:
- The per quarter rental charge is INR 5,400
- The per month rental charge is INR 1,800
For Silver edition (product price of INR 18,000):
- Quarterly rental – INR 1,800
- Monthly rental – INR 600
All taxes are included.
The price also includes Tally.NET, with all the features available under this, including Remote Access.
To make things simpler, you can move from Silver to Gold and from Gold to Silver during the rental period as well (using a simple formula).
The pricing depends on the calendar and not on use. This means a one month rental license will expire after 30 days (quarterly after 90 days) from activation.
For all practical purposes, a rental license is no different from a 'regular' license. You get all the features and capabilities including the use of Support Centre & Control Centre, and access to our support department via chat, e-mail and toll-free telephonic support.
Managing the license is easy. Each rental license becomes part of your account as sites, and gets full benefit of the enhanced manageability capabilities of the regular edition of Tally.ERP 9.
Rental or Perpetual?
Is rental the solution instead of the perpetual license?
The answer is - 'it depends'. Both these have their advantages.
A rental license is really suitable for occasional or short term use. For those sites where you plan to use Tally.ERP 9 regularly, a perpetual license is ideal. It costs less, and once you buy one you acquire a lifelong license to use. A rental license will cost 40% of the cost of the regular license, per year. Therefore, for ongoing use, rental may not be the best option.
Since rental prices are pegged to the existing product price, any revisions to the latter will impact the cost for rental as well.
We have introduced this model to make it commercially viable for you to think of Tally.ERP 9 for all your business needs.
Our design principle is simple –you should pay as much as is needed, and no more.
Any time before, or just after the expiry of your rental period, you have two options to continue the full use of Tally.ERP 9:
You acquire a perpetual (regular) license of Tally.ERP 9. You can do this from within Tally.ERP 9 itself, paying by credit card or via Tally Currency (that you can buy from your nearest Tally dealer). Optionally, you can pick up a license pack from our dealers.
You extend the rental license period by as many months or quarters you want to, paying by credit card or by Tally Currency, from within Tally.ERP 9 itself.
Some frequently asked questions:
I do not renew. Will my data be intact?
Yes. Your data continues to be portable. You can use this at other sites or with other licenses of Tally.ERP 9.
Can I move from perpetual to rental, and get a refund?
No. You can move from rental to perpetual and not the other way around.
Do I get a rebate while moving from rental to perpetual?
No. In all cases, the perpetual license is at the normal price –no rebates or discounts are applicable.
Is rental the same as hire-purchase? Will I get a perpetual license if I pay rental for ‘x’ months?
No. Tally.ERP 9 - Rental is similar to taking a house or office on rent.
