INVESTOPEDIA EXPLAINS 'Advertising Appropriation'

In practice, the amount of the advertising appropriation is not very easy to establish. This is because of the lack of a definite relationship, in most cases, between the amount of advertising and the company's sales and profitability. Advertising appropriation is also sometimes referred to as advertising budget.
