Reconcile invoice with Cloud Billing report

When comparing the total cost in your monthly invoice with that in the Google Cloud Billing report, you are likely to see discrepancies due to various reasons (for example, DoiT discounts or custom pricing).

This page explains how to build a Cloud Analytics report that matches the Cloud Billing report closely.

Match Cloud Billing reports‚Äč

To build a Cloud Analytics report that matches the Cloud Billing report as closely as possible, follow the steps below:

  1. Adjust the settings of the Google Cloud Billing report:

    • Make sure that the Time range of the report is Usage date.

    • Clear the checkbox of Promotions and others. These are promotional credits from Google Cloud. Their application depends on your contract with DoiT.

    • Filter out the Looker service if applicable. DoiT issues Looker invoices separately from other Google Cloud services.

    • Filter out DoiT marketplace products if applicable.

  2. Adjust the settings of the Cloud Analytics report:

Be aware that discounts applied to individual SKUs depend on your contract with DoiT. It's possible that within the same project, some SKUs have higher discounts than others.
