Microsoft to update Dynamics 365 Business Central licensing policies for NAV transition

Blog

Based on partner feedback, Microsoft has announced it will be updating a range of licensing policies for Dynamics 365 for Business Central to address partner concerns, which will improve the benefit of transitioning from NAV.

Dynamics NAV to Dynamics 365 Business Central User Transition Ratio Increases

The below is a permanent change, not a limited time offer, and it applies to licenses purchased before May 1st 2019. Customers that have already transitioned to Business Central will receive their additional users via a license adjustment in May 2019.

  • All Dynamics NAV concurrent licences purchased before 15th May 2019 will be mapped 3 : 1 to Business Central Named User Licences. This has increased from 2:1 and also the cut off date has been moved from October 2018 to May 15th 2019.
  • Each Dynamics NAV Full user licensed before May 1, 2019, will receive 3 Dynamics 365 Business Central on-premises Essentials or 3 Dynamics 365 Business Central on-premises Premium users.
  • Each Dynamics NAV Limited Concurrent User CAL licensed before May 1, 2019, will receive 3 Dynamics 365 Business Central on-premises Team Members users.

Dynamics 365 Business Central External Accountant and System Administrator User

Business Central on-premises customer licenses have been updated to include, at no charge, one CAL for an External Accounting User and one CAL for a System Administrator User. This will prevent customers having to buy an additional licence in order for them to be supported accordingly.

These user types have been included on the Subscription licensing model for Business Central on-premises since October 2018, and have now been added to Perpetual licensing model for Business Central on-premises.
