What are Commissions and Fees

The expense category of commissions and fees should cover fees you pay to other professionals such as a real estate agent, or if you pay a referral fee to a person who finds a customer or client for your business.

This category should not include sales commissions paid to a sales person who regularly works for you.

Fees would include recording fees such a notary fee, title recording fees or a registration fee. Also fees you pay to take out permits with City or County offices can fall here.
