Rental Price
The price for rental follows the Power of Simplicity that we strive for in everything we do:

The price of rental is 10% per quarter (3 months) of the regular (perpetual) license price of the corresponding edition, and 1/3rd 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 the above figures are, for the product price of INR 18,000:

  • Quarterly – INR 1,800
  • Monthly – INR 600

All taxes are included in the above.

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 - so a one month rental license will expire after 30 days (quarterly after 90 days) from activation - and not on the number of days that you actually use the license.

For all practical purposes a rental license is no different from a 'regular' license, and you will have all the features and capabilities like the use of Support Centre & Control Centre, and access to our support department via chat, e-mail and toll-free telephonic support.

From a license management perspective, each rental license becomes part of your account as sites, and get full benefit of the enhanced manageability capabilities that Tally.ERP 9 brings to the table.
 
 
Rental or Perpetual

So is rental the way to go, instead of the perpetual license?


The answer is - 'it depends'. Both these have their strengths.

For those sites where you plan to use Tally.ERP 9 regularly, a perpetual license is appropriate - it costs less, and once you get one you acquire a lifelong license to use. A rental license will cost 40% per year - therefore for ongoing use rental may not be the best option.

A rental license is really suitable for occasional or short term use, as in the circumstances described here. Also, rental prices are pegged as a % of the then product price. In case prices are revised upwards, the cost for rental will go up 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.
 
 
Renewal Options
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). Alternatively 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 - 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 round.
  • 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 available.
  • Is rental the same as hire-purchase? Will I get a perpetual license if I pay rental for so many months?
    No. Tally.ERP 9 - Rental is analogous to taking a house or office on rent.
