So I’m working on this company which does not provide cash flow statements I’m trying to calculate capex

The way I know is Net Tangible closing - net tangible opening + depreciation for current year

Is the above correct would you include any other items such as work in progress thx

Also if the business is primarily manufacturing however if they purchase certain long term investments such as bonds could these also be considered as capex

Hello there

Work in progress is part of inventory as far as I know so not included in capex. If you are referring to lease improvements etc that are not yet accounted for you might want to look at depreciation rates over time

WIP is inventory. Definitely not Capex.
