The logo of Microsoft is pictured in Issy-les-MoulineauxBy Kate Holton LONDON (Reuters) - Microsoft plans to increase prices for some enterprise services by up to 22 percent in Britain following the plunge in the pound, likely hitting thousands of companies and government departments who rely on its cloud and software products. Microsoft said it would increase prices for its enterprise software by 13 percent and for its cloud services by 22 percent from Jan. 1 next year, becoming the latest tech company to raise fees in the wake of the vote to leave the European Union. Britain's shock vote on June 23 triggered the biggest one-day fall in sterling against the dollar and the pound is now down 18 percent against the U.S. currency, prompting computer makers such as Apple, Dell and others to increase prices in Britain.

Reuters spoke to several senior bankers from big British and international banks based in the city, including some involved in discussions with the government over Brexit.
