  • Actually, the first step is NOT to contact SF Support; you must first setup a "Business Account"-style Record Type on the Account and then you can contact them. You must have at least one Record Type defined on Accounts.

After Summer 22 Release, we can enable person account from the setup and don't need to raise a case with Salesforce Support.

Once enabled this feature cannot be disabled.
