Statement of Cash Flows Example

Guest Author - Consuelo Herrera, CAMS, CFE

.

The Financial Accounting Standard 95 (FAS 95), Statement of Cash requires all audited financial statements to include a statement of cash flows in the audited reports. Under FAS 95 rules firms may elect to prepare the required statement of cash flows using either the direct or the indirect method defined in the rule. This example shows information from the financial statements issued by the The Life Saver, LLC. The income statement shows net income for 2009 of $160,000. After a review of the balance sheet accounts and after adjusting net income for operating activity pluses and minuses net cash provided by operating activities totaled $75,000.

Cash at January 1, 2009 = $11,000 and cash at December 31, 2009 = $87,000.

Further review of the balance sheet shows the following increases and decreases relating to investing and financing activities:

  • Equipment has increased by $60,000
  • Vehicles has decreased by $25,000
  • Common Stock has increased by $36,500

The company purchased a security system for his warehouse, disposed of a company truck and issued additional shares of common stock. The security system was paid for with cash. These events are reflected on a statement of cash flows using the indirect method as follows:
