Before you beginPlan for downtime
Plan for downtime. Deleting your Google Account might take a while. You need to remove user accounts, export data, and do other cleanup. Consider doing this when downtime won’t disrupt your business. In some cases, steps might not work the first time and you’ll need to start over.
Make final payments. Deleting your Google Account removes access to your billing information. We recommend you resolve any payment issues.
Pay your closeout charge (Annual plan only). If you’re on the Annual Plan, you need to pay the remainder of your annual contract when you cancel your subscription. This closeout charge is the remaining amount due for your annual contract. Per the terms of the Annual Plan, you’re responsible for paying the full amount of your annual contract, even if you cancel your subscription before the contract is over.
Request a refund of credit. If you have credit in your Google billing account after canceling all your subscriptions, you can request a refund. After canceling all your subscriptions, and you still have credit in your billing account, you can contact Google Support to request a refund of credit. You need to make your request before deleting your account.
Don't delete your domain's Google Account to address conflicting user accounts—especially if people are using your Google services. Instead, see how to resolve a conflicting account.
