QB Issue Resolution:
I would treat this as an Allowance item and they should get their Own Subscription. You can transfer licenses under very limited conditions, but it is so cumbersome, even when permitted, that it isn’t worth it when you are That Close to the end.
I would give them a credit for three months that they will need to pay themselves. You might or might not be able to get a refund from Intuit for the unused portion, when you cancel.
