The balance sheet shows the position of the firm at one point in time. It shows the amounts of assets and liabilities at that particular time. In this sense it is like a snap shot. The income statement shows the effect of business activities over the entire year. Since it captures events over an extended period, it is more like a video. The statement of cash flow is like the income statement in that it summarizes activity over the full year, so it too is like a video. Accounting revenues and expenses can differ from cash flows because some items included in the computation of revenues and expenses do not entail immediate cash flows. For example, sales made on credit are considered revenue even though cash is not collected until the customer makes a payment. Also, depreciation expense reduces net income, but does not entail a cash outflow. Conversely, some cash flows are not included in revenues or expenses. For example, collection of accounts receivable results in a cash inflow but is not revenue. Purchases of inventory require cash outlays, but are treated as investments in working capital, not as expenses. Working capital ought to be increasing. The firm will be building up stocks of inventory as it ramps up production. In addition, as sales increase, accounts receivable will increase rapidly. While accounts payable probably will also increase, the increase in accounts receivable will tend to dominate since sales prices exceed input costs. a.
