Licenses that you have

Licenses that you have purchased never expire.

license type    = 1 Permanent

Only maintenance expires and need to be renewed on an annual basis.

Nothing in NBU will give you expiration date of maintenance.

If you register your licenses on the Licensing Portal (via MySupport), you should be able to check maintenance expiration date online.
Or else request your IBR (Install Base Report) via your reseller or Symantec Customer Care.
