Microsoft Office 365 SMB Name Changes

Published: May 4, 2020

As of 21 April 2020, Microsoft has changed the names of its small and medium business Office 365 subscriptions.

There are no price, feature or business model changes to commercial subscriptions.

The following is a roundup up of the changes:

  • Office 365 Business Essentials is now Microsoft 365 Business Basic
  • Office 365 Business Premium is now Microsoft 365 Business Standard
  • Microsoft 365 Business is now Microsoft 365 Business Premium
  • Office 365 Business and Office 365 Pro Plus are both Microsoft 365 Apps. Where necessary “for business” and “for enterprise” will be used to distinguish between the two.

If you have any questions about these changes you can read more on Microsoft’s blog or contact us by emailing or calling +44 (0)1364 655100.
