In answer to your question,per the guidelines:
Only business owners or authorized representatives may verify and manage their business information on Google My Business.
GMB Guidelines: https://support.google.com/business/answer/3038177

 

If Business B is acting as an agent for Business A, then there's nothing wrong.

 

If Business B is registering a fake location for Business A, then that's against the guidelines.  You can mark the location as spam.
Go to Google Maps and look up the second location.
Click "suggest an edit"
Select "Place is permanently closed or has never existed" and select spam from the dropdown list.

 

If Business B has registered a location for their own business but it's really closed, follow the same procedures as spam but select the option permanently closed from the dropdown list.

@KTA

 

you got a very good answer from @MargaretO And should better appreciate it instead to ask "all Top contributors" to review her answer.

We are not all supposed reveiwing the asnwers of our fellws

Nevertheless saying this: 

For me it isn't (in general) forbidden  that a business "A" is using the same address of a business "B"

 

I of course don't know the exact cirumstances of your case and it very well can be that there isn't any kind of "Chua Chu Kang Marble Company" at the address "#01-17 Skytech, 2 Bukit Batok Street 24, Singapore 659480" but there is in reality an other company "Chua Chu Kang Monuments Contractor"

But this photo shows both companies at the address:

this said:

I wonder btw why you apparently never verified your business "chua chua kang monuments contractor"

 

Is there any reason for this?
