There is a big difference between the recommended invoice and the amount of payment that seems to be customized, what is the actual amount that I will pay?

    @Yi Hojoon Thank you for your post!

    Please use invoice time range to compare charges with the invoice:
    https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/cost-management-billing/understand/review-individual-bill#compare-billed-charges-and-usage-in-cost-analysis

    The costs are finalized 72 hours after billing period is closed https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/cost-management-billing/costs/understand-cost-mgt-data#cost-and-usage-data-updates-and-retention

    In second screenshot, it is filtered by current invoice period 21-Feb to 20-Mar.

    Current actual cost is around 171K and this will grow till 20-March and after that you will get the final amount over email that you will have to pay.

    2.7M cost is just forecasted plan, it is just the estimate.. so actual cost may or maynot be close to this amount depending on the usage till 20-Mar
