Selling, General & Administrative Expenses (SG&A)

Loading the player...

Selling, general and administrative expenses, or SG&A, consist of the costs associated with selling a firm’s products and the costs incurred in running the firm’s daily business operations.

If the amount is high as a percentage of sales or as a percentage of net income compared to the amount similar restaurants are spending, the company might be spending too much money on SG&A.
