Verify or update your company profile information

Appropriate roles: Global admin | MPN account admin

The first time you sign into Partner Center as a Global admin, you should confirm that all of your company details are correct. These include primary contact, legal business name and address, and program information. If your company has more than one location, review your location data for accuracy. As the Global admin, Billing admin, or Admin agent, you will also be able to see and update your billing and tax information.

Note

You must be the Global admin to update your billing address.

Your partner profile consists of your legal business information, primary contact name and email, the programs in which your company participates, and if relevant, your other companies that are now merged under your legal business. Make sure the Company name and address in your Legal business profile are free of spelling errors and abbreviations, and match your formal company business registration records exactly. If you are operating as a Sole Proprietor, you need to use your company name as your legal name.

  1. In Partner Center, select the Settings gear icon, then Account Settings, and then select Organization profile.

  2. Review the values for Legal business profile, Primary contact info, and Program info.

If you have merged your other companies under your legal business, you can review that information as well.

Important

  • For Microsoft Partner Network (MPN) accounts, both the Global admin and Account admin can update the legal company name.
  • For Cloud Solution Provider (CSP) Indirect reseller accounts, only the Global admin can update the legal company name.
  • Direct bill partners and Indirect providers cannot change the legal name of their company if the account verification status is Authorized. If you need to change the name, you must create a Support ticket.
  1. In Partner Center, select the Settings gear icon, then Account Settings, and then select Organization profile.

  2. Select Legal, and then select the Legal business profile (Partner or Reseller) you want to update.

  3. Select Update next to the company name/address and change the details.

  5. If the verification fails, learn how to fix the problem.

Important

If you are a CSP partner, you can't change the country associated with your legal address. Your legal address country is tied to your tenant and services as well as the currency you do business with. To learn about MPN country updates, read MPN country updates.

MPN Global admin; Account admin Authorized; pending; rejected Allowed
CSP: Indirect reseller Global admin Authorized; pending; rejected Allowed

Update your MPN Global Business Account

To make these updates, you need to be either the Global admin or Account admin. Learn how to manage your MPN Global location accounts

Update your MPN ID associated with your CSP account
