Can I Transfer Ownership of a Square Account?

Because each Square account is tied to the original account holder’s personal information, and this information can’t be updated on any account, we’re unable to transfer account ownership.

If the original account holder is no longer associated with the business or organization, we recommend that the new owner contact the previous account holder and request that they deactivate the current Square account.

The new account holder can then activate a new Square account using their own information. When creating a new account, the same Employer Identification Number (EIN) and bank account can be used regardless of whether they were used with the previous account.

If possible, download the account’s sales history before requesting that the current owner deactivate their account.
