British will pay more for Microsoft software

Written by Nick Farrell


Cost of not being in the Eurozone


Microsoft is punishing UK people for sticking to the pound when countries like Greece, Spain and Italy are making it work so well.

Vole has decided to charge British companies more than a third more for their software licences in a sort of eurosceptic tax. To make matters worse, Vole has revealed that it will be the beginning of further price rises to come. UK businesses have until 1 July to place their orders under the current prices before the changes take effect.

Vote claims that there is a huge difference between the British pound and the euro, price spikes are necessary to maintain consistency. Most of UK business customers buy through the open volume licensing program which is particularly popular with small businesses. Microsoft's business partners will see a 7.5 per cent increase in list prices from July 1 for all new open purchases made, he said.

However enterprise agreement licences will increase by 25.7 percent for on-premise and 21 percent for Office 365, Select or Select Plus Agreement licences will increase by 24.6 percent, and Open Value will increase by 33.5 percent.

The price differences will not apply to Windows, Office, or other products sold to consumers through retailers or on pre-installed PCs.
