All about Statement of Cash Flows
The statement of cash flows describes all the cash activities that go in and out of an organization. It also includes cash received from usual operations and investments.
There are two major methods for calculating cash flow, although both should give you the same results in the end.
The direct method determines changes in cash receipts and payments from operations. In other words, it only reflects what's actually happened. The indirect method takes into account net income and net expenditures in a given period. This means you have to credit and debit your asset and liability accounts respectively to determine the implied cash flow, even if cash has not changed hands yet.
