StaffCover : the Annual Licence Fee
The StaffCover Annual Licence
StaffCover has an Annual Licence Fee.
Payment of the Annual Fee licenses your school or institution to use the StaffCover software for another year, on any number of computers, at school and at home, providing it is for the sole purpose of your school or college. It also gives you access to comprehensive HelpLine Support for that year, via the Support Centre … and includes an Upgrade to the new version of Options and all updates during the year. So everything you need to successfully cover your Absent Staff with StaffCover.
The licence fee details were agreed when you first installed StaffCover. To see an example of the agreement, click here.
The fee is payable annually, usually before the end of September each year. September is when the new Upgrade to StaffCover is released.
To continue using StaffCover beyond September, you will need to pay your next year’s Licence Fee, and at the same time you will receive the Upgrade to the very latest version of StaffCover.
Year 1: The first year’s Licence is included in the initial price; you don’t pay the Licence Fee until Year 2.
The major annual Upgrades are based on suggestions & requests added to the WishList by our Users / Schools.
You can see full details of the latest StaffCover Upgrades by clicking here.
Any further / smaller Upgrades that arise from Users’ comments or suggestions during the course of the year are also included in the annual fee.

Checking your licence:
For information on when your licence next expires, please go to “HelpMenu -> About StaffCover…“.
There are two exceptions to the above:
— if you are on a 3-year deal and paid your 3 years’ Licence Fees in advance, you will not need to renew until the 3 years have passed, regardless of what it says at “Help -> About StaffCover”. Contact us for a free renewal if necessary. Similarly if you are on a 4-year or 5-year deal, etc.
— if you purchased StaffCover (the full version, new, not an Upgrade) in the five months before the end of September, then you receive a free renewal until the next September.
If you have any questions regarding the Annual Licence Fee, at any time, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
