Office stationery

The text is abbreviated from 'material nao duradouro de escritorio'.

This term applies to office products that have a (short-term) temporary lifespan and are not usually included in office stocktaking, e.g. pens & pencils, envelopes, printer cartridges that kind of thing - as opposed to office furtniture, computers etc.

A more general term might be better - in this case perhaps OFFICE SUPPLIES

Example sentence(s):
  • Material não duradouro de escritório: despesas com consumíveis de escritório, de duração inferior a um ano e que não são inventariáveis, tais como esferográficas, lápis, papel, borracha, lâmpadas, marcadores, agrafos, consumíveis para computa
