Rather than being billed multiple times a month for each tenant change, consolidated billing means you would only receive 1 invoice per month. The bill is generated on the first week of every month and will show variance changes and cycle bills through the period, the total value for each seat-based subscription as well as the total invoice value against your business.

Dicker Data will be operating in the consolidated billing format for all Microsoft CSP from 30th June 2021. Reach out to microsoft.sales@dickerdata.com.au to work through the changes and minimise impact to your business.
