Hi Oweson,

 

Welcome to Adwords Community! 

 

You need to request Google Adwords in order to change time zone. Please see for details in Google Help Center.

 

Thanks

According to AdWords Help Center:

 

Select your account time zone and currency

When you create your account, you'll be asked to choose your time zone and currency. You won't be able to change these settings after you choose them because they're used to determine how you're billed.

Choosing your account time zone

Your reports, statistics, and billing are all affected by the time zone you select. For example, settings such as your daily budget run on a 24-hour schedule. We recommend you choose your local time zone so your budget cycle ends when your day ends.

In the event you set your account time zone in error, account time zones may be changed up to one time over the life of an account. To request such a change, please Request to change time zone

 

REMINDER:


We can only reset your time zone once
, so please choose your new time zone carefully. If your time zone has already been reset at your request, we will not be able to change it again.

 

Reference: Select Time Zone

More Power,
Loraine

Hello Oweson;

 

This is a tough one... Smiley Happy

The time zone is set  once, and cannot be changed ( The logic behind that is that changing the clock, would "mess" all data synchronization among google servers).

 

Contact Customer service. They will be kind to change it for you .(But only once, so think ahead about the time zone, that fits your needs - based on your location, and your campaigns )

My suggestion: pick the time zone for your location. (Where you are physically located) - even if you run campaigns for different time zones.
