I have been purchasing the Reckons memberships Annually for over 15 years - I currently purchase Advantage Reckon Accounts Plus - when I went to renew this yesterday and asked about the cost (ie was there a monthly option) I was told I could purchase a license which was considerably cheaper than the $845.00 ($620.00) the difference was that you had to pay on time or the license was cut off and you could no longer use the program. After giving this some thought does this mean you cannot use your accounting system if you do not want to renew the next year? Anybody else use this license system. I have already just paid for the license only - now I'm worried I've don't the wrong thing.

Hi Karen

There are two purchase methodologies available for software today - outright purchase and monthly / annual rental.
With outright purchase, you have access for ever to the software, as you would expect.
For rental, you have access for as long as you pay the rent.
And if you want to change software provider, you have to have different strategies for each one.
Hope that helps.
