View Full Version : Changing developer name?

Feb 1, 2014, 09:03 PM
I have a developer account under my personal name and with renewal coming up I would like to change my account to my business name. My question is do I have to register a new Apple ID account or can I change my developer account type during renewal?

Note that Apple may require you to have an incorporated corporation (C corp, LLC or equivalent) with a D&B number in order to either change the name to a business name, or to enroll a new entity as a company in the iOS developer program.

Im pretty sure they won't let you just change your business name on an individual account. You will probably need an LLC at least... At least years ago I believe thats how it was.

Firewood is correct, I had to go through that process when changing from an individual account to a business. (At least for the US) You have to be incorporated , have a D&B number and an IRS tax number. I think I may of needed a business bank account at some point in that process as well. Either way, you should have a business bank account if you plan on running a business.
