Moving Payroll Premier to new computer

Hi all,

having received the 2018/2019 upgrade recently the business would like to move the software to a different computer at the same time.
What is the process for moving the software?

Does it need to be unregistered, or uninstalled form the existing computer?
Do I need to run the upgrade first on the existing install before opening the data on the new computer or can I simply install the new version on the new computer and open the existing data and it will convert it all then and there?

thanks
Scott

Welcome to the Reckon Community Scott.

Your situation is straightforward.

I suggest you complete all your 2017-18 work on the original PC and then create a backup which you will transfer to the new PC.

Install 2018-19 on the new PC, open the Sample file and Activate.  Then restore the backup from the original PC into the 2018-19 version on the new PC.  it will upgrade and be ready for use for the new financial year.


regards,
John.
