Find Out Your Billing Cycle

Overview

Invoiced billing

If you have invoiced billing, you'll generally receive one invoice each month. An invoice for a particular month should be available by the fifth business day of the following month.

Self-serve billing

If you have a self-serve billing account, your costs are charged automatically in one of two ways, whichever comes first:

  • A regular monthly cycle (monthly billing)
  • When your account has accrued a certain amount of charges (threshold billing)

View your billing cycle

To view your billing cycle and find out when you will be billed:

  1. Sign in to the Google Cloud Platform Console.
  2. Open the console navigation menu (menu) and select Billing.
  3. If you have more than one billing account, select Go to linked billing account to manage the current project's billing. To locate a different billing account, select Manage billing accounts.
  4. In the Billing Overview page, click the Payment overview tab.
  5. Find your billing cycle in the top card, along with your current outstanding balance and your last payment date and amount:

    • Invoicing (terms): This billing account is an invoiced billing account. An invoice for a particular month should be available by the fifth business day of the following month. The terms are displayed in parentheses, including the number of days you have to pay your invoice (for example, Net 30 days).
    • Monthly automatic payments: This billing account has a monthly billing cycle and the linked payment instrument (such as a credit card or bank account) will be charged automatically on the second day of every month for charges accrued during the previous month.
    • Automatic payments: This billing account has a threshold billing cycle and the linked payment instrument (such as a credit card or bank account) will be charged automatically when the costs accrued meet the threshold, or thirty days after your last bill, whichever comes first.

Threshold billing is described in more detail in the following section.

Find out what your spending threshold is

A billing threshold is a level of spending that, when met, triggers a charge to your billing account. The threshold starts at a set amount which is raised automatically if your costs reach that amount within 30 days. Otherwise, you are charged 30 days after your last bill. Fees are accrued in the period between charges.

Google Cloud Platform Billing Cycles

To find out what your spending threshold is:

  1. Sign in to the Google Cloud Platform Console.
  2. Open the console navigation menu (menu) and select Billing.
  3. If you have more than one billing account, select Go to linked billing account to manage the current project's billing. To locate a different billing account, select Manage billing accounts.
  4. From the Billing navigation menu, click Payment settings to access details about your payments account.
  5. View the threshold amount in the Payments account card, below How you pay. For example, if your billing threshold is $1000.00, you might see a message that says "You'll be charged when your balance reaches $1000.00 or 30 days after your last automatic payment, whichever comes first."

You won't be emailed or notified when your billing threshold increases, but you can find your current threshold any time by going to your billing pages.
