Microsoft 365 Price Increase & the New Commerce Experience

Recently, Microsoft announced the first substantial price increase to its licencing programs for over a decade. From the 1st March 2022, Microsoft will be incorporating a price increase between 8.5% and 20% across all licencing programs. The following licenses are affected:

 

*The planned increase does not affect Education and Not-for-profit based licensing

 

Alongside the price increase, Microsoft have also announced the launch of the New Commerce Experience (NCE) for all Microsoft Cloud subscriptions from the 1st January 2022.  Customers will be able to commit annually to their existing licences and price fix them for a 12 month period.  Alternatively, customers can commit on a month-by-month basis but this will result in an additional 20% premium on top of the price increase.  For example, the Microsoft 365 Business Basic license on a monthly commit basis will see a 40% increase from the 1st March 2022.  A blended monthly and annual approach will also be available.
