Understanding your billing options

When setting up your payment information for AdWords, there are two things two keep in mind: Your payment setting and your form of payment.

  • How you pay (payment setting): This is how you make your payments. Your choices are:
    • Automatic payment setting: You're automatically charged after your ads run, either 30 days after or when you reach a preset amount (known as your threshold), whichever comes first. You can also make payments at any time to control your costs and when you're charged.

    • Manual payment setting: Pay when you want for future costs. With this setting, you make a payment before your ads run. Then, as your ads run and you receive charges, the credit from your payment will decrease. When your payment is used up, your ads will stop running.

    • Credit line (monthly invoicing payment setting): Some businesses are eligible for a Google credit line if they meet certain requirements. With this method, you accrue costs and receive a monthly invoice. Then, you pay for these costs with a check or bank transfer. Your payments are within a timeframe that you've agreed to with Google, according to terms and conditions. Contact your customer service representative for more details or learn more about monthly invoicing.
  • Your form of payment: This is what you use to pay your bills, such as a credit or debit card. The choices available to you will depend on your country (that is, the country of your business address) and the currency you've selected for your AdWords account. See your payment options.

Your VAT information

AdWords accounts with European Union (EU) business addresses are subject to Value Added Tax (VAT) charges. Here's a few things you'll need to know, but reach out to your local tax authority for more information:

  • If you use your AdWords account as a business account -- that is, for economic gain, such as receiving increased revenue, sales, or sign-ups -- you won't be charged VAT. But you might still be responsible for self-assessing and paying VAT at your EU Member State's local rate.
  • If you don't use your AdWords account for an economic gain -- it's a personal account -- you'll be charged VAT at the current Irish rate.
  • If your business address is located in Ireland, you'll be charged VAT at the current Irish rate regardless of your business status.
  • If your business address isn't located in the EU, we won't charge you VAT on your AdWords costs regardless of your business status.
