Dear Mr Do,

Microsoft have announced upcoming changes to British Pound pricing that will come into effect on 1st January 2017.
These price changes will harmonise prices for enterprise software and cloud services within the EU/EFTA region, bringing GBP close to Euro levels. Microsoft periodically assesses the impact of its local pricing of products and services to ensure there is reasonable alignment across the region. This change is an outcome of this assessment, with similar adjustments made previously in other currencies.

Starting 1st January 2017:

On-premises enterprise software prices will increase by 13%
Enterprise cloud prices will increase by 22%

Even following this, customers across the region buying in British Pound will still find Microsoft cloud offerings highly competitive. For indirect sales where Microsoft products are sold through COMPAREX as a reseller, we will still work with you to determine final prices and currency of sale. In the EU/EFTA region, partners will continue to have access to prevailing prices in Euro, Norwegian Krone, Swiss Franc, Swedish Krona, and Danish Krone, along with revised prices in British Pound. Additionally, as a COMPAREX customer, you will still be able to take advantage of our Dynamic Global Sourcing, giving you access to an even wider range of currencies and pricelists.

For business customers, these changes will not affect existing orders under annuity volume licensing agreements for products that are subject to price protection. However, prices for new product additions under such volume licensing agreements and purchases under new contracts will be as defined by the pricelist at the time of order. This pricing change will not apply to consumer software or consumer cloud services.

The following agreements will be affected:

Enterprise Agreement
Open License Agreement
Open Value & Open Value Subscription Agreement
Microsoft Products and Services Agreement (MPSA)
Select/Select Plus Agreement
ISV Royalty and Distribution Agreement
Service Provider License Agreement (SPLA)
Cloud Solution Program (CSP)
Syndication (from 1st February)
Microsoft Online Subscription Program

To discuss these changes in more detail, please do not hesitate to contact your Account Manager who will happily discuss the options available to you before and after this adjustment is implemented, including:
