  • Initial CSP value and Maintain CSP Value: Customer must purchase eligible Dynamics online licenses with an annualized value greater than or equal to the annual EP renewal amount of their existing Dynamics on-premises license. Customers must maintain the minimum CSP license value during the promotional term.Active EP plan: Customers must have an active EP plan for the on-premises system being migrated.

How it Works: Below is an example for GP customers, but this applies to any of the qualifying Dynamics on-premise scenarios.

Take your annual GP Enhancement Plan (EP) amount, divide that by 12 (for 12 months). You need to meet or exceed the monthly amount in Promotion licenses to qualify. In this example, this customer is migrating to Business Central. Therefore, they can get the below license quantities to meet their monthly EP amount, 7 Essentials and 5 Team Member. If they need more, they can always have more.
