    A friend of my needs some advice concerning licenses within small
    businesses. It is a small business that will require 4 licenses for
    Microsoft Office XP. How much would each license cost & would they get any
    benefits if working as a registered charity.

    NB - Note I'm from the UK so £ (sterling) only. Thanks

    Also.. how would they go about purchasing the licenses, would they need to
    contact Microsoft UK dept or is it possible to puchase through a normal UK
    software vendor (eg. Dabs)

    Any advice on this topic would be helpful.

    I think 5 is the minimum number for Volume Licensing.
    Your friend would probably get copies cheaper at a discount vendor rather
    than from MS direct....

    We bought them about a year ago from Simply Computers
    Office XP standard was £259.84 each and XP professional was £313.05. They
    have probably gone up since then.
    We purchased 4 std and 1 Pro I don't know if you can buy less than 5.

    You could ring them about charity status on 0870 727 6830

    The MS US site has loads about licensing / minimun orders for each level
    and links for charaties IIRC.
    Try the UK MS site maybe.
    Ask the vendors. You already mentioned Dabs. Some of the larger vendors
    run the MS volume license and other schemes. A few emails or phone cals
    should get you what you want.
