Expense Category

What expense category is logo design?

There is no definitive answer to this question, as it will depend on the specific business and their accounting practices. However, some possible expense categories for logo design could include:

Advertising and Marketing

Many businesses will categorize logo design under their advertising and marketing expenses. This is because a logo is often used as part of a company's branding and marketing materials, such as on their website, business cards, and in social media.

Professional Services

Another common expense category for logo design is professional services. This is because logo design is typically done by a professional graphic designer, and the cost of their services will be invoiced separately from any other expenses.


Some businesses may have a separate category for logo design, or may include it under other miscellaneous expenses. This will again depend on the specific business and their accounting practices.

“Accurate classification of expenses is vital for businesses as it forms the backbone of financial reporting, tax compliance, and strategic decision-making. It enables businesses to track and analyze their spending patterns, identify cost-saving opportunities, and assess the profitability of various operations or projects. Having a single source to turn to for accounting classification suggestions, such as the Ramp Expense Classifier tool, is immensely helpful as it provides consistency, reduces ambiguity, and streamlines the expense classification process.”
