@SimpleByte - Examples of revenue expenditure include utilities and telephone costs. The electric, gas, water, and phone bills for a given month only get you through that month. Capital expenditures, in contrast, are purchases that will benefit the company for a long-term period rather than a short-term period. A new fax machine and printer, for example, can last the company for a couple of years so they are examples of capital expenditures. Repair costs for the fax or printer, however, are revenue expenditures since they are short-term costs. Things like Internet fees, rental or lease costs, and employee salaries are also revenue expenditures.
