Know your billing options

OOO Google (Google Russia) filed for bankruptcy in Russia in June 2022 and is no longer operating. On 18 October 2023, the bankruptcy court announced the start of the liquidation phase of Google Russia’s bankruptcy proceedings. During this phase, a court-appointed liquidator will manage Google Russia and its liquidation.

These insolvency proceedings are governed by the Insolvency Law of the Russian Federation. More information about these proceedings is available on the court’s website (link) and the official bankruptcy register (link).

When setting up your payment information for Google Ads, there are 2 things to keep in mind: Your payment setting and your payment method.

Payment setting: how you pay

This is how you make your payments. When you signup for a new Google Ads account, depending on the choices you make around country and currency as well as the payment method, your payment setting options are:

  • Automatic payments: You're automatically charged after your ads run, either on the first day of each month 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. Note: Google no longer accepts prepaid cards for automatic payments.
  • Manual payments: 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 accrue costs, the credit from your payment will decrease. When your payment is depleted, your ads will stop running.

You may switch the payment setting for your account between Automatic to Manual payments, and vice versa, in your account’s Billing Settings. To change your payment setting:

  1. In your Google Ads account, click the the Billing icon Billing Icon.
  2. Click Settings.
  3. Open the “How you pay” section, then click to open “Alternative payment options” to view other options available to you.
  4. Follow the steps in the pop-up window to confirm the change.
Note: Only users with Admin or Edit Payments profile access can make this change. To check your access type, click the the Billing icon Billing Icon, select Settings and then click to open the "Payments users" section.

If you have more than one Google Ads account, this feature might not be available in all your accounts.

Monthly invoicing (credit line)(available to eligible customers contracting with Google Ireland): Some businesses are eligible for a Google credit line if they meet certain requirements. With this setting, you accrue costs first, then receive a monthly invoice. You pay for these costs with a cheque or bank transfer. It is required that you make payments within the timeframe that you've agreed to with Google, according to terms and conditions. Learn more about monthly invoicing.

Payment method: what you pay with

This is what you use to pay your bills, such as 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 Google Ads account. See your payment options.

Your VAT information

All Google advertisers that pay by bank transfer and have a Ukraine billing address are subject to Value Added Tax (VAT) charges at the current Ukrainian rate of 20%, as required by Ukrainian legislation.

If your account is served by Google Ukraine, according to tax regulations in Ukraine, when you’re buying goods or services from a company operating under the general tax regime, you pay VAT included in the prices of the product or service. Since "Google Ukraine" is operating under the general tax regime, you’ll also pay VAT for Google Ads.

If your account is served by Google Ireland and you pay by credit card, Google will charge 20% VAT for Personal tax status customers as well as Individual entrepreneur tax status customers whose “VAT registration status” is set to “Not registered”.

For more information on taxes, visit this page.

When setting up your payment information for Google Ads, there are 2 things to keep in mind: Your payment setting and your payment method. Your payment method is how you pay, and your payment setting is when you pay.

In general, your country and currency determine the payment methods and payment settings that are available for your account. But there may be cases when a payment method or setting that’s normally available for your country or currency becomes temporarily unavailable for your account.

Payment setting: when you pay

This is how you make your payments. Your choices are:

  • Automatic payments: You're automatically charged after your ads run, either on the first day of each month 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. Note: Google no longer accepts prepaid cards for automatic payments.
  • Manual payments: 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 accrue costs, the credit from your payment will decrease. When your payment is used up, your ads will stop running.
    The manual payments setting isn't available for new accounts in the countries and territories listed below. If you can't find this option when creating your account, you’ll need to proceed with the automatic payments option to finish creating your account. Your account can't be switched to manual payments in these countries and territories.

Value Added Tax (VAT) is a 5% tax on goods and services that is paid to the Taiwanese tax authority. Google will issue you a GUI (Government Uniform Invoice) each time you make a payment if you're on the manual payments setting, or each time you receive a monthly invoice with a taxable amount due if you have a credit line. The exception is that if your payment method is credit card (on either automatic or manual payment settings), you won't be charged VAT, and Google will not issue you a GUI.
