Expense/expenditure #2 (permalink) Mon Feb 13, 2006 10:52 am   Expense/expenditure
 

Hi,

Expense is the cost of something as in: The expense of running an old car increases every year because it keeps breaking down.

Expenditure is the process of spending or the amount of money spent as in: A local government council has to work out the necessary expenditure for the year before they can calculate how much the citizens have to pay.
