Microsoft Price increases
As we all know, cost of living rises are a hot topic at the moment.
Microsoft announced last year that they too will be increasing their prices in 2022 – some by as much as 20%.
These price increases will start from the 1st March this year and is summarised in the table below:
|Microsoft 365 Business Basic||20%|
|Microsoft 365 Business Premium||10%|
|Microsoft 365 E3||13%|
|Office 365 E1||25%|
|Office 365 E3||15%|
|Office 365 E5||9%|
At the time of writing, Microsoft have confirmed non-profit, charity and academic pricing is unchanged, however we would expect these to rise this year too.
How to protect against the rises
As a Gold Partner, Smartdesc can provide Microsoft licensing directly to you and lock in the prices you pay now, for 12 months.
It also means we take on the management of billing, so you don’t need to juggle credit cards and expense claims.
We do not add any margin for this – you will pay the same as you pay now.
