Be sure to have the following information ready to include in the Transfer of License and Subscription Application:
It is important to enter correct email addresses for both the Transferor and Transferee, as Autodesk will communicate solely through email if there are any issues. And, if approved, Autodesk will email both Transferor and Transferee for their electronic signatures to complete the TOLS process.
Once the Transfer of License and Subscription application is approved, the Transferor/original owner of the software license(s) should provide the Transferee/recipient of the license with all pertinent physical media if applicable. Autodesk is under no obligation to provide additional or replacement media to either the Transferor or the Transferee for the software being assigned.
The transfer of Autodesk products or subscriptions involves the transfer from one individual or company to another individual or company, or from one country to another country.
The Autodesk License and Services Agreement governing use of Autodesk software generally prohibits transferring ownership without the prior written consent of Autodesk. However, in a very limited number of circumstances, Autodesk will allow the transfer of products or subscriptions between parties or locations. These circumstances include, for example:

Autodesk licenses are designed to make using the products easier for you. When you purchase your Autodesk software, you’re given two main types of licensing options: stand-alone or network.
Stand-alone licenses are ideal for individuals or small offices that require only a few people to access and use Autodesk products. They do not require network connectivity to run and usually cost less than network licenses.
A stand-alone license with single-user access supports one or more Autodesk products for an individual user and computer. Single-user access is ideal for individuals or small offices requiring one or more stand-alone licenses of software assigned to specific user(s) or device(s). For most Autodesk products, a copy can be installed on a second computer for “non-concurrent usage;” meaning that the two copies cannot run at the same time (i.e. you can use your Autodesk products on your work computer, as well as your personal computer when out of the office).
Purchasing multiple-seats of a stand-alone license supports a specific number of users, allowing you to install, register, and activate one or more Autodesk products on several computers using a single serial number.
Network licenses are ideal for larger organizations that require many individuals to access and use Autodesk software from multiple locations. Multi-user access allows more than one person to share software licenses.
A network license supports the use of Autodesk products up to a maximum number of users or “seats”, who are connected to a server network. The products can be installed on as many computers as desired; however, at any one time, can only run on the maximum number of computers for which licenses have been purchased. Because you can install the products on more systems than the number of licenses purchased, you get true floating licenses across your entire organization.
A software utility called the Network License Manager (NLM) issues licenses to users, up to the number of seats purchased. If all network licenses are in use, no more computers can run the Autodesk product until a license is returned to the NLM. The NLM is supported by the three possible server models. When purchasing a network license, you specify the server model which best suits your needs. Your three options are:

Before we get started on how to transfer ownership of Autodesk Licenses, let’s define what circumstances dictate requesting a Transfer of License (TOL). Transfer of License (TOL) may be allowed if either circumstances apply:
(a) a transfer of a perpetual license from one person or company to another person or company (limited circumstances; see form for details)
(b) a transfer of license by the licensee from one country to another country for use in that other country.
The Autodesk License and Services Agreement governing use of Autodesk software generally prohibits Transferring Ownership of Autodesk Licenses without the prior written consent of Autodesk.
Please note: If you own a standalone license and just want to move this from one computer to another, you can do so by using the License Transfer Utility.
Moving on, in order to make a TOL request, you will want to follow the steps below:
After you submit your application:
