Using the Google Guide it says : 

1. Choose account details
2. Choose USD as your currency, regardless of your country [Important]
3. Do not submit billing or payment information [Important]

"Please do not submit billing or payment information at any time during the process.Skip this section in your account setup and ignore any messages asking you to submit billing information. If you enter credit card information, you will be financially responsible for any charges that accrue on your credit card." 

Now when i go through the process of doing this you are unable to skip the billing section. if just goes red and does not let you proceed.

Can somebody help me .
 

( I seen in another thread saying the solution is to use google ad words editor but this does not work as you are unable to create a account due to the above problem so you are unable to load it with google editor as no account exists. )

On the page for Step 1: Create An Account, of the Ad Grants Account Creation Guide is one of the MOST import parts of the process which allows you to easily skip billing:

 

Get started by visiting https://adwords.google.com/um/Welcome/Expert

 

Start there and you will not have an issue with billing.

 It says on the guide

  • o not enable these features: Display Network, Display bids, managed placements, managed placement bids, and automatic bidding.

    It does not let me change the Tax information status to Charity or no Profit etc.

    As you can see it is not possible not to enter billing information as there is no skip. Looking on these forums it would seem that many other people are having the same problem.
