Overhead Definition

Overhead is the ongoing business expenses that do not directly produce revenue.

Overhead Extended Definition
Overhead includes all of the indirect expenses related to operating a business but not to producing a good or delivering a service.

Overhead can include costs such as:

  • Rent
  • Utilities
  • Depreciation

Overhead costs are considered fixed expenses and do not change with the rise and fall of revenue each month.
