Pacific Time (PST or PDT)

The U.S. time zone for Google headquarters in Mountain View, California. Your account will use this time zone if you didn't select one while setting up your account.

  • When you create a Google Ads account, you choose a time zone that we'll use for your reports, statistics, and billing. If you didn't select a local time zone, your account will default to Pacific time, so your reports and average daily budget cycles will be based on that time zone.
  • The dates and times listed in your account can refer to Pacific Standard Time (PST) or Pacific Daylight Time (PDT), depending on the time of year. PST and PDT are one hour apart.
  • It’s not possible to change the time zone of a serving account. The time zone is set at the time of account creation. However, for manager accounts (MCCs), it’s possible to change the time zone once in an account’s lifetime and only eastward. If you meet the above eligibility conditions and want to change the time zone of an account, contact us.
