Office 365 Business Premium vs Business Essentials + Office365 Home

So I have a client who had their 5 domain mailboxes moved into the office365 cloud environment by their previous IT on a Office365 Business Premium Plan. Now they want to create another mailbox to direct spammy/unimportant emails too, however it seems like this requires the addition of another User license, which is $190 which they are not too happy with and I agree.

Upon review of the Office 365 Business plans, the lowest tier is Business Essentials which is $84 per user/yr but it only includes the online mailbox and 1tb OneDrive. Which is the main thing required here, then the next tier up is Office 365 Business, which has everything except the online mailbox (Kind of weird?) but thats already $158 per year... no thankyou.

So got me thinking cant I then just downgrade to Office 365 Essentials, then buy Office365 home to install on their workstations and almost half their licensing costs while maintaining the exact same features just split across 2 licenses?

Is there anything I am overlooking here?

That's how it is, you can't go for office home edition, as this is for home users only and not business

You have also option to create shared mailboxes which doesn't require license


And also each of these licenses can be install up to 5 different computers, you could set up two users using same email and don't have to worry about anything extra
