Close a Stripe Account

To close an account with Stripe, the owner of the account can go to the Data tab under Settings > Compliance and Reporting and select “Close this account…”.

If the Stripe account was created through a third-party application, this will not close the account with the third-party. Deleting an account with a third-party product does not delete the Stripe account connected to it. The only way to close a Stripe account is from the Stripe dashboard as outlined above.

Once a Stripe account is closed, it cannot be undone. We recommend exporting the data in the account to a CSV file before closing it.

Additional Information

  • A Stripe account cannot be closed with an existing balance.

  • There is more information regarding the effects and responsibilities of closing a Stripe account in our terms of service.

  • Closing a Stripe account will not automatically close any associated Stripe accounts. If you want to close all of your Stripe accounts, each account will need to be closed in this way individually.
