I'm not sure @Nigel B what exactly you refer as a brand page.

But afaik brand pages never could get "verified"

Verifying is a matter of local GoogleMyBusiness listings only (and ever been so)

rereading the starting post of @Nigel B I think you referred to the deprecated option to connect a brand page to GoolgeMaps (aka "Connect a Google+ page to your Google My Business listing")

But as said.

With the recent divorce between GoogleMyBusiness and G+ this option have been deprecated.

@Nigel B

 

please provide me a link to this "verified brand Account" or a screenshot showing it as verified.

Brand pages btw are no anymore part of GoogleMyBusiness.

In the past and actually only local listings are subject of the verification procedure of GoogleMyBusiness.

I suspect there is any kind of confusing of terms if you write about "have one verified brand account already"

 

Any screenshot or link showing your "verified brand account" could perhaps help to sort out this confusion of terms.

The one circled in red is verified,  the one on black is the one I'm trying to add to GoogleMyBusiness, but it just creates ANOTHER brand account which you can just see below with the orange icon.

"Helco Arial" aka "https://plus.google.com/+HelcoaerialCoUk1" is a verified local business listing under your control in GoogleMyBusiness.

I agree the fact it'm mentioned on your screeshot as "brandaccount" is pretty confusing.

But it become less confusing (or more) if yo go to https://myaccount.google.com/brandaccounts

Under this link you get all you "Brand accounts" listed - regerdless being GMB listings or plain Brand pages.

 

Your other red hightlighted item  is "Maotoring Deals" (aka https://plus.google.com/+MotoringdealsUk1) and this seems to be a brand page "only" - there is not even a location or address sepcified.
