The Internal Revenue Service defines a business expense as ‘ordinary’ and ‘necessary’. Ordinary expenses are those costs typically incurred in your industry. A restaurant would not ordinarily purchase vaccines. And a medical practice would not purchase 50 heads of lettuce.
Operational costs are the typical expenses incurred to run a business. They are generally those costs not included in cost of goods sold and include mostly the office related expenses.
