Permanently Closed - when removed from Google?

My business had a Google page but I have now closed the business. Google have now listed it as "Permanently Closed" but I was just wondering how long it takes for the Google listing (the Knowledge Panel I think it's called) to be removed?

Hi Mark,

Did you move the business, or has it closed permanently? If the former, then as soon as you start building up an authoritative online presence at the new address then Google will decrease how often the old address comes up, until eventually it doesn't show up any more.

if it is the latter, then it will probably take a while longer, as Google works out that there is no point in showing the business anymore.

It's closed all together. I guess it's just a case of giving it time then.
