Both methods result in same number for net Both cash flows from operating activities cash Investing and financing sections are identical for Investing both direct and indirect method. both Direct Method Sales and Cash Collected from Customers: Beginning A/R + Sales = Cash available for collection - Ending A/R = Cash collected from customers Direct Method Cost of Goods Sold and Cash Paid for Inventory: Ending inventory + Cost of goods sold = Required inventory - Beginning inventory = Inventory purchased this year *** Common mistake: Students report this number Are we done? NO! Beginning A/P + Inventory purchased this year = Cash required to be paid - Ending A/P = Cash paid for inventory Direct Method Wages expense and cash paid for wages: Beginning wages payable + Wages expense = Total obligation to employees - Ending wages payable = Cash paid for wages Indirect Method Net Income + Depreciation, amortization, depletion + Losses - Gains +/- Box that Rocks stuff Cash Flow From Operations Box that Rocks Current Asset Increase Decrease Subtract Current Liability Add Add Subtract Investing Activities Investing cash inflows include: – Sale of long-term assets used in the business – Sale of investment securities other than cash equivalents Sale (current and noncurrent) (current – Collection of loans or non-trade receivables (excluding interest Collection which is operating activity) which Investing cash outflows include: – Purchase of long-term assets used in the business – Purchase of investment securities other than cash equivalents Purchase (current and noncurrent) (current – Money loaned to other parties.
