Unfortunately, it is not possible to delete/close a Skype account.  If you no longer have intentions of using a particular account, you just need to abandon it.  You can edit/delete the details you registered in that account (you can simply replace them with imaginary values), and remove the profile image before abandoning that account so no one could identify who previously owns that Skype name.  You can also leave a status message such as "account no longer in use, my new account is XXXXX".

 

Moreover, it'll also be soon tagged as inactive by Skype and will be removed from the search results after a couple of months.

 

but if what you mean is to end any of your existing subcriptions, I think you may need to contact Skype;
