Hi @moezmansouri,

I didn't found anything in the internet, I would recommend to check your contract, otherwise open a ticket here:

My answer helped you? Don't forget to leave a like. Also mark the answer as solved when your problem is solved. :)
I believe, if you actually go through the motion of cancelling the reservation (but don't!) - the Azure Portal should give you a good indication of any refund and cancellation fee - it then takes the cancellation fee from that refund, but going through the motions of cancelling should allow you to see the the cancellation/refund amount.
in fact since the payment is monthly and no fees has not been made in advance ,we will pay only 12% of the remaining period ,otherwise if it was a payment in advance then the refunded amount will be the pro-rated remaining amount minus the 12% cancellation fees
Can you elaborate? The online docs say Microsoft does not charge an early termination fee, but may charge 12% in the future. Are you saying that article is incorrect and they are currently charging early termination fees?

Hello,@moezmansouri 

 

Could you please advise, if your statement is based on new MS policy which is applied currently?

As per the available documentation this fee is not fact at the moment - Self-service exchanges and refunds for Azure Reservations | Microsoft Docs.

Please explain the root of this contradiction?

 

Thanks,
