The Capital Expenditure Budget

This is extremely significant in some companies, less so in others.

It will list all the planned capital expenditure showing the date when the expenditure will be made, and the date that the expenditure will be completed and the asset introduced to the business.

Major contracts may be payable in installments and the timing is important to the cash budget.

A sum for miscellaneous items is usually necessary.  For example, major projects might be listed separately and then $15,000 per month added for all projects individually less than $5,000.

Within the capital expenditure budget, timing is very important.

Expenditure affects cash and interest straight away.

Depreciation usually starts only on completion.
