    What do you call these startup costs for a business?

    If I wanted to say that $30,000 is going towards intangible expenses of a business (i.e. insurance, permit fees, uniforms, initial deposits etc), what word best describes that? This is used in the Sources and Uses table of a business plan, and I want the bank to know that a $30,000 personal loan will go towards intangible assets and the banks money will go towards tangible assets, thus making their money go towards something that has collateral. Is there a specific word to best describe the above? Thanks! 10-points for a simple word!
