Install TallyPrime


Your business and its needs are unique, so TallyPrime is designed to be free of any rigid processes. Your business might need only one installation of TallyPrime for one computer, or it might need multiple installations for many computers in your office network. Accordingly, you can purchase a suitable license of TallyPrime and easily install it in your office. Setup Manager will take care of the installation and basic configuration.

Irrespective of whether you are a new user or an existing user of Tally, we have got you covered! If you already have a version of Tally installed on your computer, then Setup Manager will detect the last installation and help you update to TallyPrime. On the other hand, if you are new to Tally, then the Setup Manager will ensure a smooth installation of TallyPrime.
