Annual Plan

The Annual Plan might not be available in all countries. It also isn't available when purchasing Google Apps Unlimited online. For more plan options, Apps Unlimited customers can contact a Google Sales representative or local reseller.

Note: The Annual Plan is currently unavailable if you choose certain countries when you purchase Google Apps. Existing customers on an Annual Plan will remain unaffected.

When you select the Annual Plan for Google Apps for Work, you commit to purchasing Google Apps for a full year. In return for your commitment, you pay a discounted rate per user from the Flexible Plan. You're billed monthly for a portion of the annual commitment.  For Google Apps for Work, this is $50 per user per year (if you pay in US dollars). By contrast, that same user on the Flexible Plan would cost $60 per year.

The Annual Plan is recommended for organizations with a constant or growing workforce.

User licenses

With the Annual Plan, a license is required for each user you add to your account. When you purchase the plan, you commit to the number of licenses you need at that time. You can then add and remove user accounts as you wish, as long as you don't exceed your number of purchased licenses. If you need more accounts than that, you can purchase more licenses. But you can't remove licenses and lower your monthly payments until it's time to renew your annual contract.

How payments are calculated

You're billed monthly for a portion of your annual commitment. For example, if you purchase an Annual Plan for 7 licenses and pay in US dollars, you're billed $29.17 at the beginning of the following month—(7 x $50 per license per year) / 12. You continue to be billed at the beginning of each subsequent month for the remainder of your contract.

User licenses you purchase after the initial commitment are prorated. For example, if you added 3 licenses to your order on day 6 of the 4th month of your commitment, your bills would look like this:

Months 1-3: Sign up with 7 licenses   Cost per month
7 licenses = (7 x $50 per license per year) / 12 months = $29.17
Month 4: Purchase 3 licenses on 6th day of month   Cost per month
7 licenses = (7 x $50 per license per year) / 12 months = $29.17
3 licenses prorated for 24 days = (3 x $50 per license per year) /12 months prorated for 24 days = $10
Total     = $39.17
Months 5-12       Cost per month
10 licenses = (10 x $50 per license per year) / 12 months = $41.67
You can pay for your full commitment in advance instead of making monthly payments by adding credit to your account. For details, see Make a manual payment.

Canceling your service

To cancel your subscription without penalty, you must wait until your year's contract is up.

If you cancel your subscription before the annual contract is over, you're still responsible for the full value of the annual commitment. We will charge you an amount equal to the remaining balance on your account.
