Capital can include money, or any assets brought into a business by its owners.

Typically, the term ‘capital’ refers to any financial resources or assets owned by a business that are useful in furthering development and generating income.

For example; funds held in deposit accounts, automobiles, patents, software, brand names, in addition to the tangible machinery and production equipment used in environments such as factories and other manufacturing facilities.

Capital, as opposed to money, is more enduring and is used to develop wealth through investment. Money, on the other hand, is used to acquire goods and services for consumption.
