Hi there

I'm an old user of Reckon. I ran my Desktop software as a once off purchase and didn't bother with yearly upgrades as I just wanted accounting software, not full on tax/BAS reporting.

If I buy the new 2023 Desktop software does it have a mandatory upgrade/license cost or can it be used as a once off purchase to keep my finances organized?


Many thanks

Kim

    Unfortunately no once off any more, only subscription, and yes very disappointing

    Thanks Kris

    Is it the same cost every year or is it a reduced cost? EG $600 this year for software, would that make it $600 next year or is it a reduced cost just to update the software, eg $150 (These are random numbers for the example)?

    Same price every year, but price rises always possible
