Can I call the first few months payroll part of my investment?

    Ever business need an initial investment when starting
    out.  Many times this capital is used to pay payroll, in recent years; it
    has been to fund websites etc. 

    If your question is regards to how much can you write off of your payroll
    expense the answer is yes you can give the company capital and use that capital
    to pay payroll.

    If you question is can you include your payroll expense as an investment on a
    loan application the answer is no.  Payroll are like telephone bills, they
    are not assets, you need them to run your business but they are not assets.

    I hope this helped, Good Luck
