Investiments in IT may be consider Capex

Not only physical assets but even systems improvements may be considered capex. For example, when a company decides to invest or change its ERP system like SAP.

Types of Capital Expenditure

Purchases of fixed assets and purchases made to upgrade fixed assets are the two different types of capital expenditure.

Capex Categories Depend on Company and Gaap/IFRS

I would say the type of capital expenditure is according to the legislative framework the company is under. For example if a company is based in IFRS (European Union), then the cost related to development in a project that is breaking new ground or of features that will generate a future income for the company would also be categorised as capex. If something will generate a income it is then seen as a capex, but it will depend on the nature of the company and what accounting rules it is following.
