What is changing for my billing account?

We are updating our billing system this month and consequently, you may receive two invoices. For all subsequent months, you will receive a single monthly invoice as usual. Your account will continue to work as usual. No action is required from you.

Will there be a pricing change?

There will be no pricing change due to this transition.

Will there be a currency change on my billing account?

No. Your current billing account will continue to work as is. If you pay in USD currently, you will continue to pay in USD and if you currently pay in JPY, you will continue to pay in JPY.

Are there any tax implications of this transition?

No. You will continue to be charged Japanese indirect tax (JCT) as usual.

What action do I need to take?

This change does not require any action from you. All your GCP resources will continue to run as expected.

Can I create a new billing account to pay in Japanese Yen (JPY)?

Yes. After December 15, 2018, you will be able to migrate your projects to a new billing account to pay in JPY. For assistance with the migration, please contact Google Cloud Billing Support.
