SG&A Expense

View Financial Glossary Index

Definition

SG&A expense (short for Selling, General and Administrative expense) is a line item on the income statement, though sometimes sales and marketing expenses are reported separately from general and administrative expenses.

The details of how SG&A expenses are calculated vary widely from company to company, so YCharts recommends looking at the annual report (10-k) an investor is interested in dissecting this number further.
