Original Cost

The total cost of a transaction after commissions, interest rates, and other expenses. For example, a student loan has a principal and interest rate, but the original cost may include an origination fee, a federal default fee, and other expenses. Physical assets also have original costs: one must buy the asset, transport it to where it needs to be, and perhaps pay start-up fees to begin to use it.
