Deleting a company in Fathom

Any user from your organisation with 'Administrator' permissions can delete companies or groups in your Fathom account.

When you delete a company in Fathom, all financial and non-financial data associated with the company will then be deleted from your account. Deleting a consolidated group or benchmark group will not automatically delete the underlying companies in the group.

At any time, you can add a company to Fathom again. Alternatively, you can add another company in its place.

Note: Deleting a company will not automatically cancel or downgrade your Fathom subscription.

You can delete a company or group in Fathom from two places:

Deleting a company form the 'My Companies' page
