Business verification - We were not able to verify your business details

I have been a partner for quite a while.  Now that I'm moving over, I'm finding that my verification failed.  The screenshot tells the story.  I'm just a sole proprietorship and work hard to build apps for clients with .net and sql server and azure.  Being a partner gives me credibility in this process.  I'm not sure what my next step is towards verification, but I've seen Microsoft people reach out on here before, so I'm hoping someone will do so again and give me some assistance.  Thx.

Hi Andra


I have a ticket open 2104040040000122 and no answer despite providing the docs required. , this new verification schema was poorly implemented by Microsoft this time! it's adding more work for us clients and for Microsoft staff.


Thank you.

I have also been a MAPS subscriber since 2011 and instead of Growing as a partner (according to the latest webinar) I have been left out as a partner!!!My subscription has expired almost a month ago giving me more headaches than we already have in such difficult times.

I have been emailing and attaching documents for two (2) months now so as to “verify my account”!!!! but with no response from your support team (the ticket ID is 2101250040000740)

I understand the circumstances, I understand that the documents are in Greek and probably have to be approved by a native speaker but as we can all see in this forum the cases that are facing the same problem are numerous. It is unacceptable to interrupt my services for an action that is taking you longer than anticipated and could have been resolved months ago.

Let me state that for all the time I have been a MAPS subscriber there was no change in my legal entity or communication data.


Since the support team has failed this is my last resort to find help.


Thanks in advance

@phambleton- I had the same issue until I worked out the right combination that was required.I would suggest checking with your post office as to the right address, as that's the one I used here in the UK  I'm not stuck on employment verification, and that doesn't make sense how that's in a 'rejected state'.


Just seems Microsoft are making it extremely difficult for Small Business to register.

After 60 days, a lot of internal verification to see if we could have a hidden problem, contracted Dunsregistered and no answeres our business verification was approved. Now everything is fine.


Going through this I understood that the whole process up to the business verification  is all automatic and should work without problems. If you are having a problem before business verification you can try to resolve it for yourself. Business verification is a manual, time-consuming and SLA-free process.

Three weeks ago I uploaded all the document necessary to validate my business (Ticket ID 2102170040002755) and am still stuck at my business/domain being rejected. My Action Pack renewal period is over in a couple days and it will not let me renew it. I've been a MAP subscriber for two decades, but it looks like it ends this year. I expect incompetence from large corporations, but Microsoft has certainly taken incompetence to a new level. Looks like I'll be moving everything to Google or AWS.

Hi @geschinger  and @Adamos,


I hope you started your week well!

Yes, there is a backlog worldwide on verification support queues, hence you are experiencing delays in getting in contact with an agent.

I made a note of your feedbacks and will forward to internal teams for reference.


Thank you for understanding,

Hello Andra,


Thank you, much appreciated.  Do you by chance know what the avg turnaround time is during this period of delays? 

I'm just unclear what to expect and if I should plan on trying to find a work around with my Action Pack 30 day renewal grace period expiring in a week. 

When I opened the case I believe it mentioned 3 days the response on the ticket I opened actually says to Expect response within: 8 hours.  If it's two weeks I may still be alright, if it's month I need to start figuring out what licenses I would need to acquire to make it until there would be a resolution.

I am also running into problems with employment verification.


I have tickets open for business verification: 2102120040005993 and employment verification: 2102160040002763.  I submitted documentation for both just to be on the safe side and hopefully not go from problems with employment verification to then repeat the process with business verification.


I noticed the status switched at one point to verification pending before it went back to failed status but with nothing updated on the tickets I have no idea if what I submitted was rejected or if that is totally unrelated.

Hi guys

I'm facing the exact same frustration obstacles as you all. @Andra can you help escalate a case to support? 

I already have a ticket open, but nothing happens and when I try to call them on +44 344 800 6006 (selecting MAPS) my call is rejected due to busyness. 

My license expire very soon and me and my customers depend on these licenses to work.

Support Case #2101260040003900


I have also been waiting with no response from Microsoft Partner Support... I just don't understand why/how this takes so long. I read the links and uploaded the required documents but I still have not received any response. The 800 support number just says we can't take your call... goodbye. What gives Microsoft? Am trying to purchase the Action Pack to spin up demo servers to show to our client base to make some sales upgrading clients from Server 2008/Exchange 2010 to Server 2019/Exchange 2019. Any suggestions or help greatly appreciated... and "Thank You" in advance! We only have 171 days left on our trial installs.
