(L.O. 1) The information in a statement of cash flows should help investors, creditors, and others to assess: (1) the entity’s ability to generate future cash flows; (2) the entity’s ability to pay dividends and meet obligations; (3) the reasons for the difference between net income and net cash flow from operating activities; and (4) the cash and non-cash investing and financing transactions during the period.

Operating activities include all transactions and events that are not investing and financing activities. Operating activities include cash effects of transactions that enter into the determination of net income, such as cash receipts from the sales of goods and services and cash payments to suppliers and employees for acquisitions of inventory and expenses. Investing activities include (a) making and collecting loans and (b) acquiring and disposing of investments and productive long-lived assets. Financing activities involve liability and owners’ equity items and include (a) obtaining cash from creditors and repaying the amounts borrowed and (b) obtaining capital from owners and providing them with a return on, and return of, their investment. 1
