II) Indirect method

  • 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.
