Microsoft Price Increase

In July 2023 Microsoft announced its Consistent Global Pricing Policy, the aim of the policy is to align the pricing of Microsoft products globally, meaning customers will have consistent pricing reflecting the exchange rate of the local currency to the US dollar. From Friday the 1st of September 2023 the price of all Microsoft licenses in Australia will increase by 9%.


Microsoft has also announced that they will be reviewing their pricing semi-annually (every February and September) taking into consideration currency fluctuations. This will provide increased transparency and predictability for customers globally and allows them to move to a pricing model that is most common in the industry.  

Microsoft is reliable and competitively priced in the market, they will continue to invest to enable their customers to innovate, consolidate and eliminate operating costs, optimise business performance and efficiency, and provide comprehensive security products.

If you have any questions regarding the price increase, please do not hesitate to contact the team at SNC.
