You can typically sign up for a free trial on the official Microsoft website to try Business Central for a limited period and evaluate if it suits your business needs before making a purchase decision
The Business Central free trial remains active as long as you continue signing in. However, to use your own data, you’ll need to switch to a 30-day trial. If a Business Central trial goes unused for 45 days, Microsoft deems it expired, and the associated Business Central tenant is deleted.
As your trial period’s expiration date nears, a notification will be presented upon signing in. This notification includes a link to the ‘Extend Trial Period’ guide, allowing you to prolong your trial. Upon selecting ‘Extend Trial’ in the guide, an additional 30 days will be added, starting immediately.
