We prove several results on the behavior of Kim-independence upon changing the base in NSOP1 theories. As a consequence, we prove that Kim-independence satisfies transitivity and that this characterizes NSOP1. Moreover, we characterize witnesses to Kim-dividing as exactly the [Formula presented]-Morley sequences. We give several applications, answering a number of open questions concerning transitivity, Morley sequences, and local character in NSOP1 theories.
