Microsoft announces pricing update for UK

Software Licensing

News Headers Redmond

Microsoft has announced changes to British pound pricing for customers buying enterprise software and cloud services coming into effect on 1st January 2017.

Microsoft will be increasing British pound pricing to harmonise its prices for enterprise software and cloud services within the EU/ EFTA region. This represents an increase of 13% for on-premise enterprise software and 22% for most enterprise cloud services. Despite pricing adjustments, Microsoft says that customers across the region buying in British pound will still find their cloud offerings highly competitive.

The changes will affect corporate, public sector and academic customers and prices for new product additions under existing Volume Licensing Agreements (including MOLP, OVP/OVS, MPSA, EA/EAS/SCE, CSP and MPSA), and purchases under new contracts will be as defined by the price list at the time of order.

For business customers, these changes will not affect existing orders under annuity volume licensing agreements for products that are subject to price protection. The pricing change will not apply to consumer software or cloud software.
