Agreement Terms

The agreement term is three years.

At the end of three years, SPLA resellers can sign a new agreement, let the agreement expire, or extend the agreement for 12 months or the longest remaining customer agreement period, whichever period is shorter.

You must request an extension at least 30 days before your agreement expires. You can only request an extension if you are not signing new customer agreements and need to provide software services beyond the end of the agreement to existing customer agreements.

You cannot provide software services to any new customers or extend any existing customer agreements.

You can terminate the agreement with 60 days prior written notice to Microsoft.
Within 30 days of your agreement terminating or expiring, you are required to remove all copies of client software from your customers’ desktop PCs and ensure that your customers return or destroy all copies of client software
