Ensuring a seamless transition of billing responsibilities on your A2X account involves a few simple steps. Whether handing over billing to a client or taking charge, follow these steps for a hassle-free process. The transfer options below are specifically tailored to accountants and bookkeepers who pay for A2X on behalf of their clients.

This article will guide you through two billing transfer options:

  • Transferring Billing to your client

  • Transferring Billing from a client to the accountant/bookkeeper

Transferring Billing to your Client

Step 1: Cancel Subscription

Initiate the process by first cancelling the account's subscription. Click your user icon in the top right corner then click Subscriptions:

Next, click 'Edit Plan':

You will be redirected to the plan selection page. Click 'Cancel subscription':

Please Note: If you do not see the options shown above for the subscription you're needing to cancel, instead go to Settings > Billing, click 'Cancel Subscription' there, and follow the prompts to complete the cancellation. The account will revert to trial mode.

Step 2: Invite Client as User
Invite your client as a user to the account (if not already). Go to Settings > Users and send an invitation.

Step 3: Client Re-Subscribes
Upon receiving the invitation, the client logs in and re-subscribes using their payment details. For a guide on how to subscribe, feel free to share our support article HERE with your client.

Step 4: Adjust user Access
As the process concludes, you can remove access for your staff, unlink teams, or leave the account if access is no longer required. This ensures a clean and efficient transition of billing responsibility.

Important note: It is not required to switch the account admin to your client in order to transfer billing to your client, as these are separate functions in A2X. If you have any questions or experience any issues, please contact us at

Transferring Billing from a Client to the accountant/bookkeeper:

Step 1: Client Cancels Subscription

If you're transitioning billing from your client to you, kick off the process by asking the client to cancel their subscription. This step turns the account back to trial mode. (If your client needs help on how to cancel they can follow the article steps HERE)

Step 2: Invite Firm Billing Owner

After the client has cancelled, if they haven't yet done so, they'll need to send an account invite to whoever will be the firm billing owner. The client can do this in their Settings > Users.

Step 3: Firm Billing Owner Jumps In

Once you have accepted the invitation, the firm billing owner will simply just need to log in and re-subscribe the account. This ensures the account stays active and smoothly transitions billing responsibilities.

Conclusion: Whether you're transferring billing to a client, or from a client, these steps are designed to make the process as easy as possible for you. If you have any questions along the way, feel free to reach out!
