With price increases up to 25%, these changes will inevitably impact organizations. How to reduce the hit:

  • Early preparation
  • Renewal price protection options

Pricing changes go into effect on March 1, 2022 and these increases will apply globally with local market adjustments for certain regions. There are no changes to pricing for education and consumer products at this time. See below for a rundown of the pricing list for commercial products:

  • Microsoft 365 Business Basic (from $5 to $6 per user)
  • Microsoft 365 Business Premium (from $20 to $22 per user)
