In recent news, Microsoft has introduced a new pricing policy for subscription licences based on the exchange rate of the local currency to the US dollar from 1st April 2023. This change means that Microsoft Cloud products have increased by –
EUR, DKK & NOK: +11%
These increases are in addition to the price rise already applied in January, with another price review planned later this year. If the Euro and GBP strengthen against the dollar, it will make Microsoft subscription licences more expensive for the European market. These changes affect businesses of all sizes but particularly small to medium size businesses and those with smaller budgets.
What does this mean for you? The chart below shows the increase in costs of subscription licensing based on the number of users.
*Microsoft 365 Apps for Enterprise used as this product contains the same product suite as perpetual volume licensing.
Do not let Microsoft’s unpredictable new pricing policy for subscription licensing limit your access to Microsoft products. Pre-owned Office 2019 Professional Plus pricing starts at just €129 (one-off payment). The table below shows the cost-benefit of Pre-Owned Office 2019 Professional Plus when the cost is amortised over a period of months.
*Cost shown is for one user licence (one-off payment) – Bulk discounts apply on larger orders
By utilising Pre-owned Office 2019 Professional Plus licences instead of Office 365 app for Ent, companies can expect cost reductions of over 70% in just three years. This is without factoring in any further price increases Microsoft may impose.
