Microsoft is dedicated to making the benefits of world-class cloud technology accessible and affordable for nonprofits. As such they offer registered charities a considerable discount for a wide range of their solutions.

Incremental has supported nonprofits and charities with Microsoft Dynamics for over 20 years and have supported them in accessing and making the most of the discounts available. In this article we discuss the discount available to nonprofits for Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central.

How do you qualify for the nonprofit discount?

To qualify, organisations must be a nonprofit or non-governmental organisation (NGO) with a recognised charitable status in their respective location. This covers most registered charities as well as a range of nonprofit and membership organisations. To be eligible, nonprofits need to have an organisational vision that Microsoft approve of and meet its non-discriminatory requirements.

The eligibility for each region of the UK differs slightly, depending on the registered charity commission:

  • England and Wales – those registered with the UK Charity Commission and/or registered with HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC) as tax exempt
  • Scotland – those registered with Scottish Charity Regulator and/or registered with HMRC as tax exempt
  • Northern Ireland – those registered with the Charity Commission for Northern Ireland (CCNI) and/or registered with HMRC as tax exempt.


Nonprofit discount for Dynamics 365 Business Central

Standard pricing Charity pricing Discount
Team Member £6 £2.40 60%
Essential £52.79 £21.10 60%
Premium £75.40 £30.20 60%


The pricing above is based on a per user per month cost. Team members are limited to only view certain capabilities. For charities it is unlikely that you will need the manufacturing or service management capability of premium so we would recommend a mix or essential and team member licenses with your core finance team having full access using premium and your wider organisation having view only access as a team member.

This is all done in an affordable, cloud-based solution. Dynamics 365 Business Central allows charities to manage and monitor their spend and fundraising accurately to ensure complete oversight and maximum impact.
