Hi,

I am getting invoice which not tally with my m365 license in my company tenant portal. We have reach a tier which microsoft gave us the "Free License".

It is a hassle as in the GUI, i cannot identify which is free and paid BUT only can cross reference in the monthly reseller invoice to differentiate which is free and paid.

Free License = M365 license in tenant portal - monthly reseller invoice paid license

Thanks
Raymond

    Hi there,

    You can try the Office 365 Admin Center to check the License status of all the Apps you use.

    Sign in to Office 365 portal.
    Select the app launcher icon in the upper-left and choose “Admin”
    lick on “Licenses” to see different licensing options

    There are plenty of PowerShell scripts that produce reports of various aspects of licenses. If a "free" license is just a different SKU you should be able to find one (or several) to get you started.

    Search for "powershell microsoft 365 find accounts with free license", "powershell O365 license reconciliation report", etc.
