Remove one or more Business Profiles from your account

If you no longer want to manage a business, you can remove it from the Google Account that you use to manage your Business Profile.

You won’t be able to manage the business directly through Google Search or Maps, but the business may continue to show up on Google.

Important:

  • The removal of a Business Profile is permanent and affects all the profile's owners and managers. To manage the profile again, it must be reverified.
  • Only primary owners and owners can remove the profile.
  • If you no longer want to manage the profile, you can remove yourself from the profile

Update your business address

Important: If your business moves, don’t create a new Business Profile.

Instead, update your business address so that customers can go to your new address. You may be asked to re-verify the address.

After you update your address, you can enter your opening date and post from your new address.

If you want to update an address but you don't own the Business Profile, you can request ownership from the current owner

You can also report incorrect addresses on Google Maps.

Understand new owner & manager limitations

The new owner or manager of a Business Profile must wait for seven days before they can manage all the features. During this seven-day period, they get an error if they:
  • Delete or undelete a profile.
  • Remove other owners or managers from a profile.
  • Transfer primary ownership to themselves or a third user.

If the new owner or manager deletes their account within the first seven days, they’re removed from the profile. If they change their mind, they must be added again.

Tip: If an existing owner or manager tries to transfer primary ownership of the profile to a new owner or manager still in their first seven days, they get an error.
