Microsoft 365 Price Increases From 1st March 2022
As we are all very aware the overall cost of living continues to rise and it is a hot topic within the wider community. We have no immediate intentions to increase any of our prices, however for services we re-sell we need to stay inline with their pricing and thus will update our pricing to reflect the imminent Microsoft 365 price increases. They implied last year a price increase would likely happen and unfortunately it’s now upon us. At the time of writing, Microsoft have confirmed that non-profit, charity and academic pricing is unchanged, however we expect these too to rise at some point in the future.
Why are they increasing prices?
This updated pricing reflects the increased value Microsoft has delivered to customers over the past decade. Since introducing Microsoft 365, Microsoft have added 24 apps to the suites including Microsoft Teams, Power Apps, Power BI, Power Automate, Stream, Planner, Visio, OneDrive, Yammer, and Whiteboard—and have released over 1,400 new features and capabilities.
Also, starting on 1st March 2022, Audio Conferencing functionality will be included in all Teams-inclusive Microsoft 365 and Office 365 licenses across Enterprise, Business, Frontline, and Government suites.
Microsoft Increase Prices

|Microsoft 365 Business Basic||£4.50|
|Microsoft 365 Business Premium||£16.60|
