Google has updated how to report a problem about a business page that you find listed in Google Maps. Previously the options were to report the business as Permanently Closed.
The updated “report a problem” feature now includes :
- Permanently Closed
- Doesn’t Exist
- Moved Elsewhere
How to Report a Problem in Google Maps
When you come across a business page >> suggest an edit
Select >> Place is permanently closed or doesn’t exist >> YES
Select the correct label >> Add a note >> Submit
If you are the business owner, I would also report a duplicate via Business Support, this will be dealt with almost immediately rather then being queued

Secondly, if you are reporting something about a business page, use the “Add a Note” feature and add some details as to why you have labelled it : Closed, Doesn’t Exist, Spam, Private, Moved or Duplicate.
This will help a reviewer to understand the report and approve the label.
Still have a Problem >> Google Support
Online Ownership offers a Google Business Consulting Service to help tidy up these types of issues.
