What's the offer?
Microsoft announced a new Cloud Solution Provider – Enhancement Plan Renewal Offer to help accelerate customer’s journey to the cloud. This new offer enables existing customers that are active on their Enhancement Plan (EP) to renew through the Cloud Solution Provider (CSP) program and receive Dynamics 365 Business Central online licenses.
COVID-19 has significantly impacted the way organizations operate across all industries. As leaders shift their organizations to focus on business continuity and contingency planning, they are turning to their business solutions to get the insights needed to sustain their business through the crisis. Those with legacy systems are finding that data siloes, blocked access, and security concerns are making navigation more challenging during this disruption.
The time is now for Cloud ERP as customers need the scale, security, accessibility, and business continuity provided by Dynamics 365 Business Central. And with this new offer, we (Microsoft) are removing pricing barriers for our customers.
Qualifying Dynamics On-premise customers on the Dynamics Price List who are active on their Annual Maintenance Plan can renew through the CSP program and receive Dynamics 365 Business Central (cloud) licenses at no extra cost, when they are ready to move to the cloud.
Offer Duration: 1-year subscription with 2-year auto-renewal option.
Am I eligible?
Customers qualify for the Renewal Offer by meeting the following criteria:
Dynamics On-premises License: Customer licensed for Dynamics 365 Business Central, on premises, Dynamics NAV, Dynamics GP, or Dynamics SL via the Dynamics Price List prior to June 1, 2020.
Active on Maintenance Plan: Customer has an active Maintenance Plan and is within 30 days of their annual maintenance renewal date. This promotion is not available for net new customers.
Licensing Requirement: Customer must purchase Dynamics 365 Business Central (cloud) licenses with an annualized total greater than or equal to their EP annual maintenance renewal amount.
Minimum License Requirement: Customers must meet and maintain the licensing requirement for the term of their CSP subscription to prevent a lapse or expiration of their EP. Customers who fail to meet the eligibility requirements, or cancel their CSP subscription, must pay their prior year’s EP costs in addition to lapsed fees, as stated in the Customer Services and Support Policy, to continue to receive EP benefits for their on-premise Dynamics ERP solution.
Must take action on the offer on or before your annual EP maintenance renewal date.
Customers who lapsed on their annual EP maintenance renewal plan are not eligible for this offer.

Q: What is the minimum licensing requirement for customers?
A: Customer must purchase Dynamics 365 Business Central cloud licenses with an annualized total greater than or equal to their EP renewal amount. Example: If the annualized EP amount is $1200, the monthly CSP will need to be equal or greater than $100.
Q: How does it work if we are current on a product with concurrent users and now the structure is named users?
Q: If we meet the minimum licensing requirement, but require additional users, due to our usage of concurrent users, how can we ensure we have what we need?
A: For those customers with a high number of concurrent users on a DPL license, Microsoft will allow a one-time add within 60 days of their offer activation.
In this case, Velosio will be able to request additional users at a $0 SKU to true up your usage, up to the 1:4 ratio (concurrent to named users). Additional users beyond that will need to be purchased at offer pricing. Customer must provide a credit card for identification purposes when redeeming those codes (card will not be charged). The request for additional true up users must be made within 60 days of initial CSP license purchase to receive this benefit.
