Our organization is planning to move of Office 265. We have a lot of Access databases. I believe that most of them are 2007+, I know that older databases will have to be converted to 2007+ before going to Office 265.

Most of the departments have Office 2016.

Are there any issues I should be on the look out for?

Typically, going up shouldn't be an issue. Just to be safe, you should try to do some testing first, if you can.

Office 365 default install is 64 bit. Either you have manually select to install 32 bit version, or install 64 bit and do the necessary correction in your databases to be able to run on 64 bit.

Apart for the 32/64 bit issue (which unless you are using Active X controls, will be a minor adjustment), current versions seem to be a little more "fussy" with certain VBA constructs.
I have seen code that compiles and works fine in 2003/2007 that fails in 365.

Testing will be the best route to discover any strange behaviour.
