Google Workspace Verification Transaction

Hello all,


I signed my company up for google workspace recently and they send a small sum of money (between 11p and 35p I think) to verify your bank account. 

As yet I haven’t made my first payment to google for the workspace account but I am wondering what I do about categorising this 33p they sent me! :face_with_tears_of_joy:

Has anyone had any experience with this before? I don’t know if google take the money back in the first DD in which case I’d be inclined to just leave it uncategorised until first payment. 

Seems a lot of worry for 33p but maybe someone can shed some light on this for me?


Many thanks in advance

Google Workspace Verification Transaction

Hello there, @B-Legal.


Allow me to chime in and fill you up about Google Workspace verification transaction.


Google do this so they can ensure that your money will be sent to the right bank account when it is actually sent. You'll want to contact Google support to verify if google will take the money back. If so, you can just leave the transaction uncategorized until your first payment. If not, then we can record it as expense transaction. Although, I'd still suggest working with your accountant to help you choose which transaction category you should use.

I'll leave it to one side until google takes its first payment.


Thanks again
