Personal subscription not available after my account was linked to my company's Azure profile.

Good day,

I have an existing Azure subscription which is billed to my personal account.
After my account was linked to my company's profile I am no longer able to see my original subscription.
When I sign in, I'm automatically redirected to my company's account.

The problem is that I have a virtual machine on this "missing" subscription that's running which I can't stop and its accumulating costs which is a big concern.
I can still access the virtual machine via RDP.

I'm unable to log a support request because I do not have access to the subscription.

Any advise on how I can proceed to regain access to my subscription would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks a lot.

    @Schmidty Thanks for your time and co-operation with the support professional.

    Sharing the solution for the benefit of the broader community.

    We successfully transferred your Pay-As-You-Go Subscription ID from non-active account to active account. kindly request you to log on to the Azure Portal (In-private Browser), check the subscription.

    • Login to using account admin.
    • Click on the “Subscriptions” tab.
    • Select the subscription for which you want to change the Service-Administrator.
    • Click on “Edit Subscription Details”.
    • Here you will find the option to change the Service-Administrator email.
    • Enter the email you prefer for managing resources and confirm the changes.

    Adding alternate steps to change service admin

    • Login to Azure Portal using your account admin email.
    • Select 'Cost Management + Billing' on the left pane.
    • Select the Billing Scope against email
    • Click on 'Subscriptions' under Billing section.
    • Select the 'Subscription under 'My subscriptions'.
    • The overview page will open for the 'Enterprise Agreement Subscription”. Click on 'Manage' which will take you to the subscription overview section.
