You’ve got an email notification from Google that you should start your Google Ads account verification process. Now what?

It is a standard procedure in which Google tries to match the account with the company and the billing information.

The process is quite simple: you’ll need company and personal documents that should confirm that the account is associated with your company.

You will need to submit the following documents to Google:

  1. A scan of one of the documents related to the company.

    That could be any of the below documents:

A letter or notice issued or stamped by the IRS, such as CP 575 that confirms your Employer Identification Number (EIN)

– A copy of the organization’s Form 8871, 8872, or 990 from the IRS website

– A state-issued certificate of business registration or incorporation

– Your organization’s most recent SEC filing, including Form 10-K, 10-Q, or 8-K

– A business credit report from Experian, Equifax, TransUnion, or Dun & Bradstreet



  1. One of the personal documents from the list below:

Driver’s License

State ID

U.S. Passport or Passport Card

Green Card

Additional tips:

Double-check the date on your personal document to make sure it’s not expired.

Ideally, the personal document should belong to the person listed in the company’s IRS document as a company representative.

When sending a personal document, please remember that all four edges of the document must be visible. Also, you will need both sides of that document scanned.

There is usually a deadline for completing the verification process and it will be indicated in Google’s email notification.
