The determinant might not necessarily be the day first sale..it really depend on the business.

For property development,  it can be the day of engagement of consultants looking into development  feasibility

As a rule of thumb.. .deductibility depends on
A. Expense is to generate revenue not capital in nature
B. Expense incurred on accrued basis during the period of deductibility
