Expenses are the costs incurred to generate revenues. In other words, a firm records an expense when it disburses cash or promises to disburse cash for an asset or service used to generate income. A manufacturer would record an expense when it pays its employees for producing its products.

Expenses accounts are equity accounts with a debit balance. Expense accounts are considered contra equity accounts because their balance decreases the overall equity balance. In other words, debiting an expense account increases the balance instead of decreasing it like most other equity accounts.
