I have looked over the article regarding deleting your Google Apps account many times, but after attempting to follow the steps, there is no visible way to delete the account. My admin console looks like this:


When I go to "Company Profile", there is no visible option to delete the account on any of the tabs (which are Profile, Communication Preferences, Personalization and Custom URLS). I have tried selecting the gear icon to the right hand side of the page, but this only contains a 'Setup' button. After going to and completing the setup, clicking the hyperlink to it now shows this page: Setup page

On my Google account control panel, there is no button to remove the account and the data associated with it but this was noted in another Google support article.

Is there a period of time to wait before deleting an account, or is this just a small flaw in Google?

So, you have already read the google help page on this? – demure May 31 '13 at 12:57
Did you purchase your domain through a Google domain registration partner? – batpigandme May 31 '13 at 12:57
@demure Yes, as specified at the top of the post I have already read the article. – user41168 May 31 '13 at 12:57
@batpigandme I purchased the domain through Namecheap, who as far as I know are not partnered with Google. – user41168 May 31 '13 at 12:58
What shows up when you click the setup button from the gear dropdown? Also, can you link to the other support articles you reference in your question (just edit the question itself)? – batpigandme May 31 '13 at 13:13

After some fumbling around, I found under company profile, if you scroll to the bottom of the RHS there is a delete account option. First I had to delete the managed apps

What is RHS? I've never seen that in my Google Apps control panel. – Andrew Lott Jan 19 '14 at 15:21
I guess right-hand side. – Franck Dernoncourt Jan 19 '14 at 15:30

Here is a walk through video from Google on how to remove the domain.
