The ABSS Activation and Confirmation processes are the same.

Activation is for new data files, whereas confirmation is for an existing data file that you have already activated and are currently using.

When you create a new data file, and you open it, you will see this screen


There are  3 options:

  1. I want to activate/confirm my company file online
  2. I want to activate/confirm my company file later
  3. I want to mark this company file as Read Only
 Each new ABSS file that you create will have a seven day grace period


For online activation/confirmation, you will require an active internet connection.

The ABSS application connects directly with ABSS’s licence server through the internet to authenticate your licence.

This is the fastest and most convenient way to activate/confirm your data file.

By phone

To activate or confirm your company file by phone, select the second option and click Continue.
You will see the same screen as for online confirmation, except that it will say “Activate by Phone” instead of “Activate Online”

Note: This option is NOT available in newer versions of ABSS.

In this screen, If this is a new data file, you will be asked to provide your serial number. Key in your serial number in the field provided and press the Tab  key on your keyboard.
ABSS will generate a 10 digit numeric key in the Company File Code field. This code is unique to each data file.

Existing data files will already have the serial number  and Company File Code displayed.
