Viewing your monthly charges - AWS Billing

Viewing your monthly charges

At the end of a monthly billing period, or when you incur a one-time fee, AWS issues an invoice as a PDF file. If you're paying by credit card, AWS also charges the credit card you have on file at this time. This section shows how you can use the Bills page in your AWS Billing console to download invoices and view your monthly charge details.

Note

IAM users need explicit permission to see some of the pages in the Billing and Cost Management console. For more information, see Overview of managing access permissions.

Understanding your bills page

Bills page

You can use the Bills page in your AWS Billing console to see your monthly chargeable costs, along with details of your AWS services and purchases made through AWS Marketplace. Invoices are generated when a monthly billing period closes (marked as Issued billing status), or when subscriptions or one-time purchases are made. For monthly billing periods that haven't closed (marked as Pending billing status), this page shows the most recent estimated charges based on your AWS services metered to date.

If you're logged in as the management account of your AWS Organizations, you can see the consolidated charges for all of your member accounts. By using the charges by account tab, you can also view account level details.

If you're an AWS Billing Conductor user, logged in as a management account, you can turn on a pro forma view by choosing the gear icon on the top of the page. Choose View billing period to specify your billing period.

To customize the visible sections, choose the gear icon at the top of the page. These preferences will be stored for ongoing visits to the Bills page.

AWS bill summary

The AWS bill summary section shows an overview of your monthly charges. The information shows your invoice totals for the closed billing periods, marked as Issued status.

Billing periods that haven't closed are marked as Pending status. The totals show the most recent estimated charges based on your AWS services metered to date. Totals are shown in US dollars (USD). If your invoices are issued in another currency, the total in the other currency is also shown.

Payment information

The Payment information section lists invoices for the selected billing period that AWS received payments for. The section lists the service provider, charge types, document types, invoice IDs, payment status, the date AWS received the payments, and the total amount in USD. If your invoices are issued in another currency, the total in the other currency is also shown. For more information, see Managing Your Payments.

Highest cost

The highest cost section identifies your account's service and Region with the highest cost for the billing period, and shows the month-over-month trends for each. For pending billing periods, the month-over-month trend compares the month-to-date spend in the current billing period with the equivalent portion of the previous billing period.

Invoiced charges

The invoiced charges section lists the invoices for each service provider you transacted with during the selected billing period. This section includes details such as charge type, invoice date, and total in USD. If your invoices are issued in another currency, the total in the other currency is also shown. Choose the Invoice ID to view and download a PDF format for individual invoices.

The tax invoices section lists tax invoices and other supplemental documents for the selected billing period. Not all service providers issue tax invoices. The invoice ID column shows the associated commercial invoice associated with that tax invoice. Choose document ID to view and download a PDF format for individual invoices.

Savings

The Savings section summarizes your savings during the billing period as the outcome of Savings Plans, credits, or other discount programs. These savings are also reflected in the charges by service, charges by account, and invoiced charges section. Choose each savings type to see the details by service.

Charges by services

The Charges by services section shows your spend in each AWS service. You can sort by service name or amount in USD, and filter by service name. Choose the + icon next to each service to see the charges for that service by Region. Choose a Region to see charge details.

Charges by account

If you use AWS Organizations and logged into your management account, the Charges by account section shows the spend of each of your member accounts. You can sort by account ID, account name, or amount in USD, and filter by account ID or account name. Choose the + icon next to each account to see charges for that account by service provider. Choose the + icon next to each line item to see charges by service and Region. Choose a Region to see charge details.

Taxes by service

The taxes by service section shows the pre-tax, tax, and post-tax charges for each service that was charged taxes. You can sort by service name, post-tax charge, pre-tax charge, or tax in USD, and filter by service name.
