Convert an individual account into a company one
I started as a sole developer, and now there's a group of us, and we are registered as a business with IRS. I would like to be able to convert my individual account in the Marketplace into a company one without losing my publisher name, my brand, my app portfolio and my user base. It is a common scenario in the "real" world, so why should it be impossible in the Marketplace?
we did this move on ios and android and it was very easy. Developers definitly need a way to migrate from an individual account to company account because this is a very usual issue when business is growing. I think both Microsoft and us want the business to grow, right ???

You can transfer apps by contacting support and you can change name from one account to another.
However I wonder too why I can't switch country and account type!
I'm having the same problem with my "Windows Phone" version. For my 'iPhone' version, it was a matter of simple call to Apple support and the problem was solved within 2 business days. I don't see why it is not possible with Windows Marketplace.
