Can I Transfer Ownership of a Square Account?

Learn more on how to Transfer Ownership of your Square account.

If your Square account is not eligible to transfer ownership, or if you’re the new business owner, and the original account holder is no longer associated with the business or organization, we recommend the following:

  1. Download the previous account’s sales history.

  2. Contact the previous account holder and request they deactivate the current Square account.

  3. Activate a new Square account using your information. You can use the same EIN and bank account regardless of whether these were used with the previous account.
