According to @AllegroTrans there is some correction needed depending on the Situation,
- if the accounting is in the past then plural (basic expenditures) is needed, - if the context talks about future plannings singular (basic expenditure) is appropriate

Peer comments on this answer (and responses from the answerer)
agree  AllegroTrans: expenditure (singular) // both versions are used, but standard usage in UK ENGLISH preparation of accounts is "expenditure"; see discussion at https://english.stackexchange.com/questions/289540/expenditu...
4 hrs
  -> going by the discussion linked, plural still seems apropriate, as the text is about spendings that have taken place, as it is an audit that checks if everything was correctly booked

agree  gangels: yes, expenditures (plural)
