Here's how you can use EMS to look up a product expiration date and see when the next payment is due (for firms who chose to finance their payment).

  1. Look up the firm ID in EMS.
  2. Click Firm Products on the left.
  3. Locate the line item for the application, and the date in the Software Exp. column.
  4. Below that, there is a Finance Date field that displays the due date for the next payment.
Show me.

  • Licenses must be renewed to receive technical support.
  • Licensing expiration may fall within a licensing grace period.
  • The UltraTax CS icon gets added to a firm's VO or SaaS account whether they have renewed the software or not. If they have not renewed, they will be prompted to download the licenses upon opening and it will continue to fail until the UltraTax CS renewal is processed.

When opening a firm with an expired license in Flash or EMS you will see a warning message that displays the name of the expired product. Show me.

Expired Message

If this message appears do the following:

Note that the "Major Account - always support" message in EMS/Flash for a firm will always take precedence over the "Support Expired" message.
