The holder of an account can be changed for many reasons (change of corporate officer, opening of the account by a person who had received a mandate of delegation of powers for example).

Important Note: If you have a german IBAN with Qonto, the process to change the person with the role "Account Owner" is slightly different. Please switch to the German article version.
