Local Currency Pricing Update Webinar



Calling all unmanaged partners! 

Please join us for a Local Currency Pricing Update webinar on the 19th January 2023.  Please find further details below.


Announcement Overview

On 5th January 2023, Microsoft has announced, it is taking several steps to align the pricing of our Microsoft Cloud products globally, meaning customers will have consistent pricing reflecting the exchange rate of the local currency to the US dollar (USD). Starting April 1, 2023, pricing for Microsoft Cloud products will be adjusted in the following currencies: 

  • GBP: +9%
  • DKK, EUR and NOK: +11%
  • SEK: +15%

In the future, Microsoft will assess pricing in local currency as part of a regular twice a year cadence, taking into consideration currency fluctuations relative to the USD. This will provide increased transparency and predictability for customers globally and move to a pricing model that is most common in our industry.

The Microsoft Cloud continues to be priced competitively, and Microsoft remains deeply committed to the success of its customers and partners. We will continue to invest to enable customers to innovate, consolidate and eliminate operating costs, optimize business performance and efficiency and provide the foundation for a strong security strategy that customers around the world have come to rely on.

How can you register?


We are hosting an unmanaged partner specific call on Thursday 19th January from 3pm to 4pm. Please add the cadence to your diary with the link below.




We are also inviting partners to submit in advance any questions you would like to be covered in this briefing call here. Please submit your questions by 5pm on Monday 16th January and we will endeavour to cover these in the live session.

I didn't that you wouldn't get any answers - you will get answers to anything around how this will be implemented. What you will not get is anyone to listen or take action on your concerns. So it is a "This is how it is" one way conversation.
