Should I Buy Tally 8.1 ? How Can I Get One ?

The Decision to Buy 8.1 or upgrade from 7.2 needs some thinking. There are certain questions which needed to be answered first before going for upgradation. The questions that would come in a user’s mind would be :- why should I upgrade? Wether this version is stable or not.? What would happen to my Data of 7.2? Can I convert it to 8.1 without paying any extra charges? How should I upgrade? What if I stick to my existing version only?

Now first question first why should I upgrade ?
Technology wise 8.1 is a brand new software and not an upgrade of 7.2. It means All shortcoming of Tally upto version 7.2 due to technical reason or what so ever reasons are left behind. Data structure of 8.1 is suppose to handle more and more data comfortably as compare to its earlier versions.
So if slow down is your problem due to large amount of data, then you should give 8.1 a try. More over for 45 days you can test 8.1 version by activating both versions side by side. Later on you can stick to 7.2 if you choose.
There are new features in tally8.1 which we all know like multilingual support, dealer level excise, FBT etc. Now you can copy data from any software to tally and from tally to any software in windows. You wouldn't get these upgrades if you choose to stick to 7.2.
Customization is easier in 8.1.

Is the version stable
?
Version is quite stable as of now and within 15 days newer patches would be available after user's response.

What would happen to data?
A conversion tool is available with 8.1 and your existing data would remain intact. How ever a back of existing data should be taken for safety purpose and the utility for migration of data from 7.2 to 8.1 is free.

How should I upgrade
?
The task to upgrade from any lower version to 8.1 is very simple. In case or up gradation from 7.2 single version to 8.1 single version it is going to cost you just 2700/- extra and 4500/-for gold version. But if you haven't gone for up gradation of your 6.3 to 7.2 yet then now for 6.3 users 8.1 is going to cost you 4500/- and 9000/- respectively for for silver and gold version. User have to buy TVP (Tally Value Pack ) of same amount and enter the serial no. in their 7.2 versions in License->shopping section of F12. Now your serial no is ready for 8.1. Download the latest version form site and activate it with your existing serial no and activation key.

What if I stick to existing version?
This is the easiest thing to do. If you stick to existing version then New features as well as future updates will not available to you. You would remain where you are. If there is any change in tax structure or forms etc, then they would not be available for old version users.
