What are capital purchases?

Capital purchases, also known as capital expenditure or capex, are funds used by a business to make a substantial investment in long-term fixed assets. This can include purchasing machinery and equipment, land, buildings or other infrastructure, and furniture and fixtures. These assets have a useful life of more than one accounting period and can therefore appear on the balance sheet in multiple periods.
