Change personal account to business account RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    Currently we have an Azure account and it is actually setup as a personal account not a business account.
    This has now resulted in some limitations when creating Virtual Machines.
    What steps can we take to change our Azure account from personal to business?

    Thank you,

    Edward Ornelas

  • Are you referring to changing the Azure account from a Microsoft Account to an Organization Account?


    Are you referring to transferring the Azure Account/Subscription from a Microsoft Account to an Organization Account?

    If it is the first scenario, I don't think there is an option since you will not be able to register an email address as Organization Account once it is a Microsoft Account.

    If it is the second scenario, you may check the below link:

  • Did you have any luck with this? Is it possible to change the account from a personal to a business one?

    The link that Sapna referred to is for transferring billing ownership.
