Norwegian term or phrase: Påkost
I am wondering how to translate påkost into English, particularly the terms påkostberegning and påkosttaksering.

This expression has to do with the often deeply hidden fees a customer has to pay after the return of a leased vehicle. See link:

Explanation:
Your source refers specifically to "krav om erstatninger for at bilen er påført 'unormal slitasje'. The reference link below uses "excessive wear charge" for this, and I would as well. If you're referring generally to expenses tacked on at the end of the lease, I'd use "charge" or "fee" for that.

Example sentence(s):
  • "Excessive Wear Charge. Your lease probably will contain a clause making you responsible for any damage greater than reasonable wear on the vehicle."
