Term Definition
Overhead is the ongoing business expenses that do not directly produce revenues.

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 costs are considered fixed expenses and do not change with the rise and fall of revenue each month. Overhead can include costs such as rent, utilities, and depreciation.
