Selling, General & Administrative Expense

Overhead costs to a company. SGAs are usually recurring; they include things like rent, salaries, and money spent on office supplies. They do not generally include one-time costs. They form one of the single largest expenses a company can incur in its operations. These expenses are included in one category on financial statements and are subtracted from revenue when calculating operating income.
