Google has announced new fee charges for serving ads in certain countries, as of November 1,2020. 

Regulatory Operating Costs or DST Fees may be charged in addition to your advertising costs every time an ad is served in specific countries. These new fees are associated with the cost of doing business in these countries. 

A 2% UK DST Fee will be added to your next invoice or statement for ads served in the United Kingdom. The fee is driven by the new digital services tax in that country.
