Unformatted text preview: Chapter 2 Overview of Financial Reporting for State and Local Governments 2‐1. 2‐5 The solution to this and the first exercise of Chapters 1 and 3 through 9 will differ from student to student assuming each has a different CAFR. Several differences exist between the GASB format cash flow statement and the FASB format required of commercial businesses: 1) GASB requires governments to prepare cash flows from operating activities on the direct method. 2) The reconciliation of income to cash flows from operating activities of the proprietary fund, which appears in the bottom section of the statement, begins with operating income, not net income (or total change in net assets). 3) The statement has four sections, rather than the three observed in FASB format statements. These include: • Operating activities are those associated with operating income. As a result, cash flows from interest expense, interest revenue and investment income do not appear in the operating activities section. • Noncapital related financing activities involve the borrowing and payment (including interest) of loans for purposes other than financing capital additions – chiefly, borrowing for operations. • Capital and related financing include grants and debt transactions (including interest) used to finance capital additions. • Investing activities involve the acquisition and sale of investments as well as cash received from investment income. 2‐7.
