Expenditure is spending money in order to create future benefits. If a business is incurring expenditure, it means that the money is being spent on a fixed asset, or on making sure that an existing asset has its useful life extended beyond the life of the current tax year.

This could be equipment, property or industrial buildings. This capital expenditure is also known as capex. For accounting purposes, a capital expenditure is added to the assets column, so that the cost or increased value of that asset can be adjusted for tax purposes. It is usual to find capital expenditure listed on a cash flow statement as ‘investment in plant property and equipment’, or something very similar.

Capital expenditures are the costs that a business faces that do not have to have tax deducted in the year in which the money was spent; instead they have to be capitalised. This means that the capital expenditure costs will depreciate over the life of the asset, and tax liability will assessed on this.   

The things that capital expenditure can be spent on include starting, or acquiring a new business; restoring a property for business use; adapting a property for a new or different use; fixing an asset’s problems that were already in existence before it was bought if the results will mean a better fixture; acquiring fixed, and in some instances, intangible assets; and getting an asset ready to be used in the business.   

Another form of expenditure is operational expenditure, also known as opex, which means the money that is spent on a business to keep it running. These are also known as the business overheads. The aim of any business is to make a profit, so these expenses are also recorded so that they can be offset against taxes.

Expenditures or expenses include the money which the company spends in creating future benefits for the company. Expenses can be based on operations or capital. The expenses which the company incurs as the regular part of the operations are known as operating expenses while the expenditures which are spent to buy the fixed assets of the company are known as capital expenditure. The aim of any company is to earn profits and to cover all of the expenses of the company. Records of the expenditures made by the company are given in the income statements and cash flow statements.

Expenditure means expenses e.g. When you are spending money on refurbishing your house or busines, you are spending money on the facilities you need and this will lower your bank balance or in other words you will have less money to spend!

Expenditure is a word that describes the act of using or spending money. But sometimes the word is being used in some other areas also but the meaning must be to spend something. It can be understood better by the following sentence: This study requires enormous expenditure in terms of time and effort.

But the most common use of the term is certainly done in financial sector where the allocation of money is involved. These days the word is often heard when the authorities allot a certain amount of money to be spend in a certain area. The statement can be illustrated in the following sentence: The government is planning to increase the expenditure on health and education and for the purpose intending to cut down the expenditure on defense and other areas related to security.
