Google Adwords

Hi all, how would you suggest I record the cost of Google Adwords. I do not make any markup on this expense, I simply invoice my client their monthly budget and then monitor the ads for my client. Google then periodically takes payment out of my CC. My question, is Google a supplier, contractor if you wish or just straight advertising??


It would appear that you are invoicing your clients on behalf of Google, hold their payments in trust which Google will collect at a later date - is this correct.

Then I would allocate the Sales Invoice account to a BS Liability account called Google Adwords T/A (Trust Account). Then when Google collects, allocate the CC payment to the same account.

Cool , thanks and to answer your question, yes I suppose I am collecting and holding money for Google. It’s a bit like collect tax for the Government.
