Budgeting for capital expenditure or “Cap Ex” is essential for a business to operate and grow.
Capital expenditures are normally expenses a business or organisation makes to generate financial benefit over a period of years. Therefore, a capital expense is the cost of assets that have usefulness and can help a company create profits for a period longer than the current tax year. This distinguishes them from operating expenses for assets that are purchased and consumed, or used up, all within the same tax year.
