Change the Country of a Square Account
Currently you’re unable to change the country of an existing Square account. If you accidentally created a U.S. Square account, you’ll need to deactivate it and create an Australian Square account. You’ll find instructions below on how to shift your business operations to a localised version of Square Point of Sale.
You’ll always be able to log in to your old account if you don’t deactivate it. But it may be helpful for record-keeping purposes to download your transaction history from your previous account.
Why should I switch to an Australian Square account?
The localised, Australian version of Square Point of Sale allows merchants to:
Process payments in Australia
Include an Australian address on receipts
Include an ABN on receipts
Seamlessly include GST in relevant transactions
Receive product updates specifically for the Australian market
