Accounting Dictionary - Letter O
are costs incurred in organizing a business. Examples of organization costs include legal fees, costs of printing stock certificates, incorporation and underwriting fees, and promotional fees. In accordance with GAAP, organization costs are expensed when incurred, and therefore, they do not appear on the balance sheet (i.e., are expensed rather than capitalized).
