Business process overhead Definition

Examples of business process overhead include the payment of rent on the office space a business occupies, the electricity bill to power the lights in the office, and to some degree, the wages of the personnel working in that office.
Examples of non-overhead costs are incremental costs. These include a the cost of supplies used to create the goods a business sells.
