Your health insurance and / or any benefits you pay yourself.
Cell phone
Internet and phone bills
Office space costs, utilities, etc.
Vehicle and related upkeep, fuel, etc.
Any business or vehicle insurance.
Office consumables.

All of the above costs money. failing to call it overhead, is ignoring the facts.
