ErinEno asked 1 year ago

We’re in the process of reviewing our G&A allocations and trying to identify what is “typical” of other SaaS companies.  What G&A expenses do other companies allocate to R&D and S&M?  Anything to support (cost of revenue)?  100% HR, Operations, IT?  Admin as well?

We allocate all “direct” headcount expenses across functions based on the headcount in each function within S&M, G&A, and R&D, as well as Support which is in Cost of Revenue.  Facilities, benefits (medical/dental, etc), other benefits (commuter/parking, meals) — all of these expenses are allocated based on the headcount in each function.
