microsoft__logoThe UK’s decision to break away from the EU which has since been referred to as Brexit has huge consequences. Not only is this changing the future of the UK and the EU, but it also has huge cultural, social, economical, and financial impacts that may or may not be felt at the moment.


However for Microsoft customers in the UK, particularly those in the enterprise, you guys can start expecting to pay more for the company’s products and services. As announced on Microsoft’s TechNet UK Blog (via TechCrunch), the company has announced that following Brexit and due to the impact it has had on the country’s currency, prices will be increased by 13% for on-premise enterprise software, and 22% for “most” enterprise cloud prices.

According to Microsoft, “From January, British pound prices for on-premises enterprise software will increase by 13% to realign close to euro levels.  Most enterprise cloud prices in British pounds will increase by 22% to realign close to euro levels.  Even after this adjustment, customers across the region buying in British pound will still find our cloud offerings highly competitive.”

We should note that companies do adjust their prices from time to time following fluctuations in the currency, although in the case of Brexit, the price changes are more significant. Microsoft isn’t alone in this either as companies such as OnePlus have warned customers about potential price hikes, while others such as Apple and HTC have already made adjustments.
