Norwegian term or phrase: driftsløsøre
One of the entries under the "varige driftsmidler" in a balance sheet I'm translating is:

"Driftsløsere, inventar, verktøy o.l."

Anyone know the correct English term for "driftsløsøre?

moveable property


Explanation:
The translation of "løsøre" is "moveable property", not fixed property as the previous suggestion indicates.
"Drift" is generally translated "business" or "operating",
as in
driftsutgifter = operating expenses
driftsmargin = operating profit/margin
driftsmidler = business assets

I've never seen the exact term you are looking for, however, so I can only hope this will be of some help to you.

plant equipment, operational assets


Explanation:
Agree on 'fixed', which by definition is inappropiate.
'Drifts-' is translated as 'operating' only when being generated by, or having its origin in the operation of the company.
Here 'Drifts-' means pertaining to the activity being performed (on the shop floor)

[Meaning of "fixed assets" in English.]


Explanation:
Many agencies in the U. S. Federal Government uses the term "fixed assets" in the sense of "financially fixed", not in the sense of "physically/geographically anchored". These assets do not appreciate (gain in value) over time.

Hence, fixed assets (furniture, machines, weapons, vehicles) are the opposite of real property (land and buildings).





    I work as a database contractor on precisely such Federal topics.
