How will I be invoiced for Azure Plan?

Invoicing for Azure Plan from Microsoft

Billing under the Azure plan is a simplified billing experience using an aligned single billing date and calendar month-based billing period.

The invoice and reconciliation file for the Azure plan will be available in the Microsoft Partner Center dashboard/API by the 8th (midnight UTC) of the next calendar month.

The invoice billing period is aligned to the calendar month, for example, 01.10.2020 - 31.10.2020 or 01.11.2020 – 30.11.2020. Charges will align to the calendar month. For example, if the billed partner adds Azure services through an Azure plan on 15.10.2020 and the customer begins the consumption of Azure services on 15.10.2020, then the billed partner will receive an invoice/reconciliation file on November 8 for customer consumption for the service period 15.10.2020 – 31.10.2018. The next month's invoice that is going to be generated on December 8 contains all the charges for the service period 01.11.2020 – 30.11.2020.

Sellers will continue to be billed in the customer's country's assigned currency. For example, if the billed Seller is in Ireland with customers in the UK, Norway, and Germany, then the billed Seller will receive a GBP, NOK, and EUR invoice/ reconciliation file.
