Microsoft announce price increases from April 2023
Microsoft have announced changes to their commercial pricing for Cloud products.
Microsoft have advised that they are "taking several steps to align the pricing of their Microsoft Cloud products globally, meaning customers will have consistent pricing reflecting the exchange rate of the local currency to the US dollar (USD). Starting April 1, 2023
The increase for UK products charged in GBP will be 9%
Microsoft has also indicated that "in the future, they will assess pricing in local currency as part of a regular twice-a-year cadence, taking into consideration currency fluctuations relative to the USD. This will provide increased transparency and predictability for customers globally and move to a pricing model that is most common in our industry."
