Cash Flow Statement – an Indirect Approach Here's an approach you might take to solving indirect method statements of cash flow problems. Start by giving the financial statements and any other information given a good look- over. If you are given a beginning and ending cash balance, you will be able to determine the net cash flows for the year by taking the difference between those two numbers. Start at the top of the balance sheet. Circle cash--you won't use it until the very bottom of the statement. Read down through the accounts listed until you get to the last current asset. Put a line under it. The remaining assets should be long term assets and accumulated depreciation. Look at the second half of the balance sheet. Draw a line under the last current liability. Circle any dividends payable or short term notes payable, because they’re part of the financing section. Find the net income either on the income statement or in information given.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
