Option to consolidate invoices of multiple subscriptions
As a company with multiple business streams, each responsible for their costing, we need to use separate "Subscription" in order to see their Azure costs clearly. For Finance department to process payment, however, it'll save admin work if can consolidate all subscription charge in ONE invoice.
Azure has this capability already with EA & CSP. We would like to offer this for Web direct customers as well.

Is there any change on this? It's been over four years since the request was opened.

Is there Consolidated billing like with Amazon Web Service?

Great, in this process Azure Credits should also be consolidated and apply only on the last step for the final amount to be payed. This would avoid a lot of mess trying to optimize cost by moving services from one subscription to another (with all problems and limitations we know).

We'd like to see that the portal for Office 365 and Azure are combined. Right now we get a couple invoices on portal.office.com, and a couple of invoices on portal.azure.com.

Currently, each of the plurality of account management who are registered, have been issued multiple invoices in a loose timing.
So each month, is under very troublesome to that process.
1 month, I want to issue an invoice together on the day was decided.
Also it may be able to change the account administrator on the part of the user.

I direct an interactive team for a marketing agency with multiple clients. It's helpful for us to split off clients into their own subscription so we can monitor costs and easily break away if the client wants to take over maintenance. This would be a hassle if we had all solutions under a single subscription.
Ideally I would be able to take advantage of a 6-month or 12-month plan across all subscriptions, where I spend enough to make it worthwhile. However, I can only select a discounted plan within a single subscription. As I add subscriptions I'll be spending a lot of money, but won't be able to save since I've diversified to multiple subscriptions.
Please offer pricing discounts across multiple subscriptions and not simply within a single subscription.
