24 Statement of Cash Flows

This chapter contains these topics:

24.1 Overview

International Accounting Standards (IAS) 7 requires enterprises to present a cash flow statement as part of their financial statements. IAS 7 requires the provision of information about historical changes in cash and cash equivalents of an enterprise by means of a cash flow statement which classifies cash flows during the period from operating, investing and financing activities.

Due to the difference between profits and cash, the Statement of Cash Flows provides you a mechanism for:

  • Providing additional information on business activities

  • An assessment of the current liquidity of a business

  • Showing an overview of the major sources of business cash flow

  • A guide to estimate future cash flow

  • Identifying cash flows generated from trading as opposed to other sources of finance

24.2.3 Reviewing the Statement of Cash Flows Report

You can print your Statement of Cash Flows report or review it on line. When reviewing your report:

  • The Net Profit Before Taxes should be the same balance that printed on the Simple Income Statement (P10211), and use the same period number, fiscal year, ledger type and company, with processing option 6 selected. If multiple companies were selected, they will print as separate balances on the Simple Income Statement.

  • When you run the Cash Flows Statement, the program inserts 'Increase in' or 'Decrease in' text before the account description, based on:

    • If normal balance for account(s) is Debit, and actual balance is greater than (or equal to) zero, 'Increase in' is printed.

    • If normal balance is Debit, and actual balance is less than zero, 'Decrease in' is printed.

    • If normal balance is Credit, and actual balance is greater than (or equal to) zero, 'Decrease in' is printed.

    • If normal balance is Credit, and actual balance is less than zero, 'Increase in' is printed.

Note:

AFTER the above is determined, all balances are reversed (except Cash and Cash Equivalents) on the report.
  • Each description entered in the Statement of Cash Flow Rules (F10520) prints, with the Account Balance (F0902) accumulated from the ranges entered through the period selected.

    • The beginning Cash and Cash Equivalents section will print the beginning of year date and the balance will be beginning balances (APYC) of the cash and bank account ranges entered in Cash Flow Activity code 70.

    • The ending Cash and Cash Equivalents section will print the period end date selected and the balance will be the beginning balances (APYC) of the cash and bank account ranges entered, plus each period's balances through the selected period end date.

  • Net Cash Flow From Operating Activities is the subtotal of Cash Flow Activity Codes 10 through 40. Code 40 does not have a separate subtotal, but is included in the above subtotal description.

  • The Net Increase/Decrease in Cash and Cash Equivalents is the total of Cash Flow Activity Codes 10 through 60 (or Subtotals 40, 50 & 60).
