Microsoft have this week raised pricing in response to Brexit and the fall in the value of the pound. The new pricing will come into effect on January 1st 2017 and will affect cloud and on premise products and services.

The changes come as a result in the weakened value of the pound which has dropped significantly in the months following June’s Brexit vote result. Microsoft said pricing has been altered to bring its product and service pricing inline with euro levels.

As a result the following pricing will apply to all renewals and new licensing for the following cloud services (annual plan pricing):

Microsoft Exchange Online Plan 1 – 1 year / 1 user license : £39.00 + VAT
Microsoft Office 365 Business Essentials – 1 year / 1 user license : £49.00 + VAT
Microsoft Office 365 Business Premium – 1 year / 1 user license : £119.00 + VAT
