About the Budgets page in your manager account

The Budgets page in your manager account lets you track spending, billing, and budget information for all your managed accounts in one place. 

Keep in mind that even if a Google Ads account is linked to multiple manager accounts, it can only have one account budget active at a time. You can determine which account is billed for that managed account by setting up a “payments account” for it in the managed account. A payments account can be used to pay for multiple Google Ads accounts. 

This article explains what you can view on your manager account’s Budgets page. To learn more about setting up billing for your manager account, read Navigate billing from manager accounts.

What you can track in the Budgets page

The columns in your Budgets page show the following budget- and payment-related information for your managed accounts. Some columns appear in the table by default, and others you’ll need to add by clicking the column icon Columns above the table.
