Dynamics 365 Business Central Licensing: All you Need to Know

Microsoft has simplified Business Central licencing while offering cost-effective plans for all businesses.

Not only is Business Central cost-effective, but it also offers flexibility, scalability, and agility to all businesses. These benefits are empowering businesses to choose BS over other ERP systems available on the market.

Even Microsoft offers a simplified Business Central licencing guide so that businesses of all sizes and functionalities can opt for this powerful ERP solution.

Perpetual Licencing (no longer exists): Also known as the Microsoft Open Licence Programme, businesses have to purchase the application and pay a lifetime fee at once. From January 1st, 2022, Microsoft has ended this licencing option and is not allowing to renew the existing licences.

Subscription Licencing: This licencing option is based on a monthly subscription fee for a particular solution based on per-user, per-month access. This licencing is cost-effective, flexible, and doesn’t come with a monthly maintenance fee.

Effects of Deployment Options on Business Central Licensing

During the Business Central implementation process, the major concern of your implementation partner will be the type of hosting you choose. Hosting is the essential factor that determines the overall pricing of Business Central.

Currently, Microsoft is offering three kinds of deployment options:

Cloud: : Your business data will be hosted on Azure (Microsoft cloud services), where you don’t have to pay anything other than monthly subscription fees.

On-premises: Your data will be hosted on your company's servers, where you have to manage the data servers using your own resources, which include all costs.

Hybrid: Based on your requirements, you can opt for this deployment option. It is a mix of the other two deployment options, and you have to manage the cost as per your use, whether cloud or on-premises.
