Create a Google Cloud Billing account

This page explains how to create a Google Cloud Billing account from the DoiT Console and link it to your DoiT billing profile.

Required Permissions
  • Your DoiT account must have the Assets Manager permission.

  • Your account must be linked to at least one DoiT billing profile.


A Google Cloud Billing account defines who pays for a given set of Google Cloud resources and Google Maps Platform APIs. When DoiT is your Google Cloud reseller, you link your Cloud Billing account as a subaccount of DoiT's Cloud Billing account to a DoiT billing profile.

  • A Cloud Billing account is owned by a single Google Cloud organization. Access control to a Cloud Billing account is established by IAM roles.

  • You can use a Cloud Billing account to pay for multiple projects across Google Cloud organizations, if you have the required permissions.

  • A DoiT billing profile contains payment information (billing address, invoices contact, payment method, billing currency, etc.) for services you purchase from DoiT.

The diagram below shows the relationship between DoiT billing profiles, Google Cloud Billing accounts, organizations, and projects:

Invoices and reports

  • For the same DoiT billing profile, by default, costs of Google Cloud resources are issued in the same invoice, regardless of the billing accounts or organizations. To get separate invoices, you can set up custom invoice buckets in the billing profile.

  • To break down costs incurred by different projects, you can use dimensions of Hierarchy groups to build Cloud Analytics reports or create attributions to group projects from different organizations.
