Go to Upgrade your workspace, as instructed above and click on COMPANY to switch the billing under your company instead of workspace or vice versa.

So, all the owners of the workspace who don’t belong to the same company will get notified about it and will have to confirm it from their end in order to successfully start billing under company individually.
