Starting this month apps can be transferred from one account to another. To start the process you need to open a support ticket to start the process. Once you submit the request, you’ll get a checklist (for example you need to finish any pending submissions, export the reports). The acquisitions, reviews history and users are transferred, though the historical revenue is not transferred. The feature is available to every app, except if the app has IAP – support for IAP is being investigated for the future.
So this feature does not convert one account to another type, but allows a developer to create a company account and then transfer apps from an individual account to the new company Dev Center account.

Thanks folks for the suggestion and the on-going commentary. We’re marking this as ‘under review’ to acknowledge that the team is aware of this request. This is a very complicated/hard item for implementation, and there is a general feel that the new accelerated certification process alleviates much of the need (as an update can be published, for most folks, in less than an hour – rather than in 4 days).
That being said, continue to weigh in on the comments section.

I agree with Eric - this sounds like a whole new category. It would be very annoying to think an app you just installed is free, but then you find out you can only have a 10 minute trial or something like that. If that happened with an app, I'd uninstall it immediately.
