Moving Account to a new MCC

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

Hi,

 

i would like to transfer 2 Adwords accounts from one company to another so would therefore like to place them in a new MCC of the company which will receive these accounts

 

1. How is this done so that the account can keep running and all data is transferred with it?

2. Does this mean that the accounts are transferred on a legal basis as far as Google is concerned as they will be a new MCC which belongs to a different company?

 

Thanks,

Cormac

Hi Cormac,

Welcome to the Adwords Community.
Visit this link to get the solution: https://support.google.com/adwords/agency/answer/7732?hl=en

 

You can also link the Main MCC account with new Sub MCC account by using this thread.

Hi Cormac,

In most cases it's pretty simple to transfer an account from one MCC to another. The first link that Ankit has helpfully provided gives you the basic steps. As long as the account isn't using Manager Defined Spend, ads will keep running. Also, make sure that there is an "owner" of the account with administrative access. If you created the account within the MCC and then unlink it without there being independent administrative access, no one will be able to get into the account.

The data resides in the account so you won't lose it by changing the MCC. Anything that has been set at the MCC level, though, such as alerts or scripts, would not transfer with the account and need to be recreated.

We'd need to know more about what you mean by your second question to give you a good answer. Agencies and other companies often have more than one MCC, so I would think just changing the MCC doesn't mean much. If you're the new owner of a company you bought from someone else, changing the billing information and user access at the account level would be more indicative of a change like that--but again, we need to know what you mean by "transferred on a legal basis." Google is a company and not a government body. For legal matters Google would defer to the laws of the places in which it's doing business.

that second link isn't helpful. Step 4 says "click "link existing accounts"".

There is not "link existing accounts" to click on. Is there a more up-to-date method of linking MCCs?
