Not in the traditional sense. CakeBoss is a unique organizational and

profits, and price their goods accurately. CakeBoss's recipe costing, pricing, organizational,
and calendar features are custom-tailored to the home baker, and simply are not
found in traditional accounting software.

Absolutely not. Once you purchase CakeBoss, you own the license permanently.
We would never require you to re-purchase just to install on a new computer.
