It ought to remain on his cr (probaby, someone here knows best)....but not as closed unless you closed your acct.  If during a MR someones notices the account is not closed but only the AU was removed from the acct. it could (could) look as though the AU may not have been responsible enough and thus indicating the need to remove the AU. But, all it might really do is provide a necessity for someone going over his cr to ask "why were you removed?".   Ppl ask to be removed as an AU when the acct. holder runs up utl% and would rather get out from under it but also, the total opposite happens.  So it might not be worth the temp. score bump to add him, then take him off again.  (I am an AU on a closed acct, that actually is reporting as "open" and in "good standing"...so IDK for sure.)  Somebody here should know how it should report but don't count on it always.

That depends on the issuer. Some leave them as closed accounts, while others completely remove the account

It would be easier to answer your question if you let us know which card(s) you're talking about
