Get a Cloud Billing document such as an invoice, statement, or receipt

About Cloud Billing documents

In the Google Cloud Console, you can access most of your Cloud Billing documents in the Documents page. You can look for specific documents (like statements or invoices), download them in bulk or individually, create custom filters for viewing your documents, and more.

If you are looking for a payment receipt, you can find those in the Transactions page of the Google Cloud Console.

This article describes how to find all of the Cloud Billing documents that are available for your Cloud Billing account type.

Statements

A statement is not a bill. It is a summary of monthly billing activity, generated for Cloud Billing accounts that are set up as a self-serve/online account. Self-serve Cloud Billing accounts are configured to automatically pay for your Google Cloud costs based on your billing cycle. In addition to automatic payments, if you prefer, you can make a manual credit card payment to your self-serve Cloud Billing account at any time.

A statement contains your legally-registered business address, tax IDs, any payments made during the month, any taxes paid for the month, and a summary of your usage costs for the month.

Based on your charging cycle, or if you have made a manual payment, it's possible to make more than one payment in a month. On your monthly statement, payments show up as transactions.

If you want to receive statements by email, or you want to change who receives statements, see Change payments contacts and notifications.

Invoices

An invoice contains your legally-registered business address, tax IDs, any payments made during the month, and any taxes paid for the month. In general, a Cloud Billing account set up as an invoiced account generates one invoice each month.

An invoice for a particular month should be available by the fifth business day of the following month. For example, your September invoice will be ready no later than the fifth business day of October. Invoices aren't generated on weekends or bank holidays, so you should expect invoices to be delayed during those periods.

You pay your invoice balance according to the terms and conditions that you agree to when you enroll in monthly invoicing. Learn how to pay your invoice.

If you want to receive invoices by email, or you want to change who receives invoices, see Change payments contacts and notifications.

Payment receipts

Payment receipts are available for all Cloud Billing account types. You can get a receipt for your records at any time in the Transactions page of the Cloud Billing console.

If you want to receive receipts by email, or you want to change who receives receipts, see Change payments contacts and notifications.
