Preparation of cashflow statements

IAS 7 recommends that the cashflow statement can be prepared using two methods:-

I) Direct method
Whereby, cash from operations is determined by getting the differences between cash received from customers and cash paid to suppliers of goods an services and employees.

II) Indirect method
The cash from operations is determined by making adjustments to the profit before tax for the following items.

  • Non-cash income and expenses e.g. depreciation, amortization, loss or profit on disposal of PPE
  • Incorrectly classified items e.g. investment income and interest charged
  • Working capital changes.

 

In addition to the above items, the following points need to be noted about preparation of consolidated cashflow statements.
