There are now various ways to buy your Microsoft licenses:-

Microsoft Open Business

A minimum of 5 points (licenses) is needed to start a "Microsoft Open Business" agreement. This is currently the most popular licensing plan, and is meant for corporate end users with 250 and below pc users. Licenses bought through this scheme are perpetual are non upgradeable unless purchased with "Software assurance". Microsoft Open Business agreements last for 2 years.

Microsoft Open Volume

Meant for the corporate end user with 250+ pc users. Works in exactly the same way as Open Business, but the customer benefits from a better price discount.

Microsoft Open Value

Meant to split the cost of large licence orders. The "Microsoft Open Value" is purchased for an annual fee for the duration of 3 years. During the 3 years you are entitled to any upgrades for free. After the 3 years you then own the licenses. Upgrades are then stopped unless you continue to purchase "Software assurance" annually.

Microsoft Open Subscription

An annual subscription is paid to Microsoft to cover the company's licence requirements. The licenses are never owned, but are subscribed to every year. Upgrades are free for as long as the agreement is run.
