Microsoft is increasing UK prices by up to 22%
Microsoft have announced that they will increase their UK prices for its enterprise cloud services and its on-premise enterprise software due to fluctuations in the value of the pound.
Prices for on-premise enterprise software will increase by 13%, while prices for majority of Microsoft cloud services will go up by 22%.
On their blog, Microsoft stated, “From January, British pound prices for on-premises enterprise software will increase by 13% to realign close to euro levels. Most enterprise cloud prices in British pounds will increase by 22% to realign close to euro levels. Even after this adjustment, customers across the region buying in British pound will still find our cloud offerings highly competitive. For indirect sales where Microsoft products are sold through resellers, final prices and currency of sale will continue to be determined by them.”
The new prices will be introduced on 1st January 2017 and will only apply to new purchases.
