Overhead costs, an important expense item for VSEs – SMEs
Les frais généraux englobent généralement les éléments suivants :
Overhead expenses generally include the following items:
- Consumables (office supplies, cleaning products, tools, etc.)
- Technical services (cleaning, reception, logistics, security…)
- Intellectual services (communication, legal, research…)
- Investments (works, fittings, IT equipment, etc.)
- Taxes and contributions (property taxes, professional taxes, contributions…).
However, these overheads represent nearly 15 to 25% of a company’s turnover. Optimizing these costs is therefore essential, especially for VSEs and SMEs. Indeed, when you are a small company, it is not always easy to negotiate the best purchase prices.
First of all, because you usually order smaller volumes. Secondly, because you do not always have the time and in-house resources to negotiate more advantageous terms with your suppliers.
