German term or phrase: laufende Kosten
Das Businessmodell enthält Transaktionskosten, laufende Kosten und die Investitionen in Form von Abschreibungen.
Stefanie Goestl
English translation:running costs
Explanation:
I agree with the first answer "running
costs" is what we typically call it.
Current costs would mean they are not
repetitive, but only occur this month
or so, whereas running costs are the
costs such as electricity, employees, etc. which occur consistently every month.

recurring costs


Explanation:
According to the Romain Dictionary of Legal and Commercial Terms, "laufende Kosten" are current expenses or recurring costs, in the case of the latter, ones that recur say month after month. In the U.S. at least, running costs can also be associated with operating or running something, such as a vehicle that is used for business purposes and for which tax deductions are claimed.
