Non-Operating Expense meaning

Non-Operating expenses are those expenses which are not occurred from normal business activities. Every business has own specific business activities. Non-operating expenses are not part of company main operation. Most common non-operating expense is interest, borrowing charge, exchange difference, abnormal cost, non-recurring onetime expense etc. All expenses which are not related to his operation will be his non-operating expenses.

For example, if business main activity is making and sells of furniture, main business operation is making and selling furniture. For these activities, business needs to lend or borrow money and return back within permissible time with interest. Borrowing money is not main operation, so Interest expense is treated as a Non-Operation Expense. But for the banking or any financial institution, interest expense is operating expense because their main business operation is lending and borrowing money.
