Suppose we have 20 users on Tenant with E5 Licence assigned . If at any given time there are only 10 users that are active in that month ,

Is there a billing model for only Active users (10 in this case) not for all 20 users every month .

Thanks in advance!!!

    @Shreyas Rastogi ,

    There isn't currently a model like this. You pay when you purchase a license, whether it is used or not.

    One option in your case though would be to detect inactive users via Microsoft Graph or script and remove the users and licenses that you do not need.
