Bus/Financial - Finance (general)
Italian term or phrase: INF.
This is in a list of operating expenses:

615.1 ACQUISTO BENI STRUMENTALI INF. 1000000
615.2 ACQUISTO ATTREZZATURE INF. 1000000

I scrolled through all the terms starting with "inf" in Garzanti, and also looked at what KudoZ had for this (not relevant).

What could INF. be? Inferior to a million pieces? That seems exaggerated...

Thanks!

Explanation:
If the cost is less than one million old lire then you don't depreciate it for tax purposes. OVer that figure you I have to depreciate my computer over five years.

Sure. I would stick the lire in, otherwise a US or UK reader will have great difficulty, might be a good idea to stick the amount in euro in brackets too.

Notes to answerer
Asker: "Less than 1000000 [lire]" should work, then? I am glad I asked, I would not have come up with this in a million (ha ha) years.

Asker: Jim, no room for Euros. This is a table with each entry on a single line. Lots of abbreviations. I'll go with the lire. Thanks!
