  • The revenue expenditures are debited to P&L A/c whereas the capital expenditures are shown as assets in the balance sheet.

  • Purchase of a motor bike is a capital expenditure for Akram as it is going to provide economic benefits to Akram for more than one accounting year. Delivery charge is incurred at the time of purchase of the motor bike so, it will also be treated as capital expenditure.

  • The purchase of petrol and insurance expense of motor bike is of recurring nature. The insurance charges and cost of petrol paid in one accounting year will give benefits in that year alone. So, these are revenue expenditures.
