Heading into the new year, Jodi and I have been working with our bookkeeper to re-categorize some of our expenses, and we’re realizing that some of the costs associated with running a web service don’t fit easily into standard accounting categories. If you’re running a small business / web services company, how do you categorize the following?

  • Subscription services like Github?
  • Hosting services like Linode
  • Domain name purchases
  • SSL Certificate costs

Any guidance or ideas would be appreciated! Ping me @steveivy on Twitter or steveivy at google mail, and I’ll post a followup with the results.
