Operating expenses are - in terms of tax law - expenses that are caused by the operation (§ 4 Abs. 4 EStG).
The expenses are allocated to a business and can thus only be incurred in connection with income from agriculture and forestry, from business operations and from independent work. In the context of these types of income, operating expenses reduce profits.
