Can't remove AdWords account

Hi,

 

I have an AdWords account which I created for a now defunct business so I could link it with my Google Partners profile, but now I want to delete that account but I cannot find out how.

 

I'm at https://adwords.google.com/mcm/Mcm and when I go to Account settings > Preferences I cannot find any button to delete the account.

 

Thanks,

Will.

Hi @Will Melbourne,

 

You would need to set up another email address (even a dummy one) and then assign Admin rights to it, then remove your email from that AdWords account. You cannot manually remove or delete one. 

 

Further, you can also create a secondary AdWords Manager Account (old name: MCC/My Client Center) and then move non-active account to it, or you can use the hide feature in AdWords Manager account, or you can call AdWords and they can help you eliminate it. 

 

Kind Regards,

 

James
