The primary purpose of the statement of cash flows is to explain the change in an entity’s cash and cash equivalents during a period. The statement is one of the basic financial statements and provides users with a basis to assess the entity’s ability to generate cash and its cash needs. Because the other financial statements are prepared on an accrual basis, information about the entity’s underlying cash inflows and outflows is not apparent from the income statement or balance sheet. Therefore, the statement of cash flows presents important information that is not available from other financial statements. For most entities a statement of cash flows is required as part of a full set of financial statements.
Cash flow statements have recently been the subject of SEC reclassifications, making accurate presentation of the statement vitally important for companies that are publicly listed in the US and for those that intend to become listed. In addition to publicly-listed entities, this course is also important for firms that are transitioning between national GAAP, IFRS and US GAAP.
This one-day course is designed to provide step-by-step guidance through the important technical issues involved in preparing and analyzing the statement of cash flows, including applications responding to the SEC’s most recent notifications. Our expert instructors explain the proper methodology clearly and simply and provide real-world examples.
The course answers questions such as:
- What are cash flow reporting requirements?
- What are the differences between IFRS and US GAAP cash flow statements?
- How are the direct and indirect reporting methods applied?
- How are non-cash financing and investing transactions reported?
