In order to be eligible for Spire updates (which come frequently), you will need to be on a current annual maintenance plan.
Remember, if you purchased Essentials (formerly BVEssentials) before June 30, 2015, you'll get a FREE upgrade to an equivalent Spire to license when you're ready to upgrade.
If you purchase Spire licenses now, you have the choice to upgrade to it immediately or add BVEssentials to your BusinessVision, then use your Spire license to upgrade to Spire whenever you are ready.
Meanwhile, if you are interested in learning more about Spire and how it factors into the future for Sage BusinessVision users, please see The Future of BusinessVision.
