Transfer account ownership

If you’re no longer responsible for managing the locations in your account, you can transfer ownership of the account to someone else. 

  1. Sign in to Google My Business.
  2. If you haven’t already done so, create a business account and transfer your locations to that account. Accounts can only be transferred between owners and managers. If the new owner isn’t a manager of the business account, you’ll need to add them as a manager before transferring ownership to them.
  3. Click the three dot menu  in the top right corner of the business account you’d like to transfer, then click Managers
  4. Locate the manager you’d like to transfer ownership to and click Manager on the right-hand side of their name. 
  5. Click Transfer ownership to [name of the manager]Only owners can transfer business accounts, you won't see this option unless you're the account owner. 
  6. The new owner will be informed of their ownership status via email. You will now be a manager of the account.

Important: If you’d like to transfer account ownership to an unverified user, please contact us for help. Learn more about verification
