From April 1, 2024, Microsoft introduced a new lineup of Microsoft 365, Office 365, and Microsoft Teams SKUs worldwide to provide commercial customers the option of purchasing Teams separately from Microsoft 365 and Office 365.

The new lineup does the following:

  • Introduce new suites without Teams, which are named the same as the existing suites plus “(no Teams).” The “no Teams” suites will be in the following offers:
    • Microsoft 365 E3/E5, Office 365 E1/E3/E5
    • Microsoft 365 Business Premium, Business Standard, Business Basic
    • Microsoft 365 F1/F3, Office 365 F3
  • Introduce a new standalone Teams SKU for Enterprise: Microsoft Teams Enterprise
  • End the sale of net-new subscriptions to all existing Enterprise SKUs with Teams (Office 365 E1/E3/E5 and Microsoft 365 E3/E5)
  • Continue to offer existing SMB and Frontline suites with Teams (Business Basic/Standard/Premium, MF1, MF3, OF1, OF3) alongside the new versions without Teams

Impact on customers


  • With the introduction of the new commercial lineup, the sale of current Enterprise suites that include Teams to net new subscribers will end. As a result, Office 365 E1, Office 365 E3, Office 365 E5, Microsoft 365 E3, and Microsoft 365 E5 suites with Teams should no longer be sold to net new subscribers.
  • Net new subscribers to Office/Microsoft 365 Enterprise suites who wish to provide their end users with Teams will need to purchase two SKUs: Microsoft Teams Enterprise, plus either the Microsoft 365 (no Teams) or Office 365 (no Teams) suite.
  • Existing customers who wish to continue using SKUs to which they have already subscribed can continue to use, renew, upgrade, and add licenses to their current plans. If an existing customer wishes to switch to the new lineup of suites without Teams, they can do so on their contract anniversary or renewal.

Microsoft 365 Business and Frontline

  • Current Microsoft Business and Frontline suites with Teams included will coexist with the new lineup.
  • Partners will have the ability to choose between the existing Microsoft 365 Business Basic, Microsoft 365 Business Standard, Microsoft 365 Business Premium, Microsoft 365 F1, Office 365 F3, and Microsoft 365 F3 suites with Teams included, or the new versions of those suites without Teams.
