End

The end date for a budget. If you didn't specify an end date, Amazon set your end date to 06/15/87 00:00 UTC. The defaults are the same for the Amazon Billing and Cost Management console and the API.

After the end date, Amazon deletes the budget and all the associated notifications and subscribers. You can change your end date with the UpdateBudget operation.

Required: No

Start

The start date for a budget. If you created your budget and didn't specify a start date, Amazon defaults to the start of your chosen time period (DAILY, MONTHLY, QUARTERLY, or ANNUALLY). For example, if you created your budget on January 24, 2018, chose DAILY, and didn't set a start date, Amazon set your start date to 01/24/18 00:00 UTC. If you chose MONTHLY, Amazon set your start date to 01/01/18 00:00 UTC. The defaults are the same for the Amazon Billing and Cost Management console and the API.

You can change your start date with the UpdateBudget operation.
