- EFA is the ending fixed assets ($)
- BFA is the beginning fixed assets ($)
- D is the total depreciation

## Net Capital Spending Example

How to calculate net capital spending?

**First, determine the beginning fixed assets.**Sum the value of all fixed assets at the beginning period. For this example, we will say this is $10,000.00.

**Next, determine the ending fixed assets.**Determine the value of all assets at the end of the time period. For this example we find the value to be $15,000.00

**Next, determine the depreciation.**Find the depreciation of the assets over the same time. We will assume this is $1,000.00.

**Finally, calculate the net capital spend.**Using the formula above we find the net capital spending is $15,000.00-$10,000.00+$1,000.00 = $6,000.00
