Microsoft has documentation on how to transfer a subscription here:

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/billing/billing-subscription-transfer and here


In the documentation, they show a button to transfer a subscription at https://account.azure.com enter image description here

However when I go to account.azure.com and create a subscription, I do not have the ability to transfer a subscription, even though I just created it.

I am using a Microsoft Azure Enterprise agreement, (not a "pay as you go" payment)

How can I transfer a subscription?

I discovered that enterprise agrements have a slightly different method for changing the owner. It is documented at the very bottom of this link.


  1. login into ea.azure.com portal
  2. Select Manage
  3. Select Account
  4. Click the icon on the right most side of the subscription where to want to move the subscription to/from (not available on all subscriptions, [e.g you can't move from a 'work' account to a 'personal' account. )
