Create a Google Cloud billing account

Overview

The Cloud Billing accounts are used to define who pays for a given set of Google Cloud resources and Google Maps Platform APIs. Access control to a Cloud Billing account is established by IAM roles. A Cloud Billing account is connected to a DoiT International billing profile.

Use these instructions to create a Google Cloud Billing Account and link it to your company's billing profile using the Cloud Management Platform.
