The following sheets are included in this template:


Info - this sheet includes all the input cells that are used in compiling the cash flow statement. User input consists of an
income statement and a balance sheet as well as some additional information that is required in order to produce a cash
flow statement.
Direct - this sheet includes a complete cash flow statement based on the direct method that is automatically calculated from
the information that is entered on the Info sheet. No user input is required on this sheet.
Indirect - this sheet includes a complete cash flow statement based on the indirect method that is automatically calculated
from the information that is entered on the Info sheet. No user input is required on this sheet.

right of the appropriate input cell. The cells that are indicated in yellow require positive values to be entered, while the cells
that are indicated in green require negative values to be entered. Cells that don't have a yellow or green colour next to them
contain formulas and should be left unchanged.

If you are concerned about replacing the formulas in the cells that do not require user input, we recommend that you protect
the sheet with a user defined password. Only valid input cells will then be available for user input. The Protect Sheet feature
can be accessed by selecting the main Tools menu, selecting Protection and selecting the Protect Sheet option. You will
then be required to enter and to confirm a user defined password (all input cells have already been unlocked in order to
allow user input).

The default reporting periods can be amended by simply entering a new year in cell B3. All the other cells in this template
that contain references to the reporting periods will automatically be amended.

The additional information section requires users to specify whether any business acquisitions, disposals of property, plant
and equipment or raising of long term finance occurred during the current and previous financial periods. The default input
values in these cells can be replaced by nil values if they are not applicable.

You'll also notice that three years' balance sheet information is required in order to produce a cash flow statement with
accurate comparative data.

The balance sheet control total in row 48 has been added to the sheet in order to highlight an imbalance on the balance
sheet after entering the required balance sheet information. If an imbalance is encountered, the appropriate cells in this row
will be highlighted in orange.

Similarly, the depreciation control total in row 49 will indicate if the sum of the depreciation that is specified in the income
statement section and the accumulated depreciation that is specified in the Disposal of Property, Plant & Equipment section
does not agree to the movement in the accumulated depreciation balance on the balance sheet. Any imbalance that is
encountered will also be highlighted in orange.

Cash Flow Statement Calculation

This section of the instructions provides more information on the calculations that are performed for each line item that is
included in the cash flow statements. Note that both cash flow statements are calculated automatically and no user input is
therefore required on either the Direct or Indirect sheets.

accounts receivable balance that forms part of business acquisitions for the particular period. The closing accounts
receivable balance is then deducted from this total in order to calculate the amount of cash that has been received from
customers.

Cash paid to suppliers and employees

This amount is determined by calculating the cash generated from operations and deducting the cash receipts from
customers from this amount. The calculation of cash generated from operations is discussed in the next section.

An alternative calculation of the cash paid to suppliers and employees is as follows:


Profit before taxation
Less: Turnover
Add: Depreciation
Add: Interest expense
Less: Investment income
Add: Other non-cash items that are included in expenditure (for example: loss on disposal of equipment)
Add: Inventory opening balance
Less: Inventory closing balance
Add: Trade payables closing balance
Less: Trade payables opening balance

As you can see, this calculation is quite complicated and we therefore recommend calculating the cash generated from
operations and then simply deducting the cash receipts from customers from this amount.

Cash generated from operations

A detailed calculation of this amount is included below the cash flow statement on the Direct sheet and at the top of the cash
flow statement on the Indirect sheet. The calculation starts with the profit before taxation and all non-cash income &
expenses and items that are included in other line items on the cash flow statement are then added back.

Investment income and interest expenses are added back because these items are included separately on the cash flow
statement. The depreciation and profit or loss from sale of property, plant & equipment amounts are non-cash items and are
therefore also added back.

The net effect of all working capital balances are then deducted in the calculation because these items also form part of
operating cash flow. Note that an increase in accounts receivable and inventory results of an outflow of cash and should
therefore be deducted. An increase in trade payables, however, results in an inflow of cash (because less payments are
made to trade creditors) and should therefore be added in the calculation. A decrease in trade payables is therefore an
outflow of cash and should be deducted.

Interest, Income tax and Dividends

These amounts are all calculated by adding the appropriate income statement amounts to the opening balance of the
appropriate provisions (liabilities) and deducting the closing balance of the appropriate provisions from this calculation. All
three amounts are negative because all three items result in an outflow of cash.

Business Acquisitions

This amount should be the total amount that was paid in order to acquire a new or existing business net of the cash amount
that was received from the business that was acquired.

the movement in inventory between the two financial years that are under review.

Purchase of property, plant and equipment

The amount of cash purchases of property plant & equipment is determined as follows:
Property, plant & equipment - closing balance at cost
Less: Property, plant & equipment - opening balance at cost
Less: Property, plant & equipment - acquired through business acquisitions
Add: Cost of assets that were sold during the period under review
Less: Acquisitions financed through financial leases

Note that the calculated amount is a cash outflow and should be included on the cash flow statement as a negative amount
and that financial leases do not result in an immediate outflow of cash and should therefore be excluded from this line item.
Payments of financial leases should be included under the financing activities section of the cash flow statement.

Also note that revaluations of property, plant and equipment should also be excluded from the cash flow statement by
deducting the movement in the revaluation reserve in the above calculation.

Proceeds from sale of equipment

This amount is the cash amount that is received after the sale of equipment and is included in the Additional information
section on the Info sheet.

Acquisition of portfolio investments

This amount is calculated by deducting the closing portfolio investment balance from the opening portfolio investment
balance.

Investment income

This amount is included in this section of the cash flow statement because it does not form part of operating cash flows.
Note that investment income is deducted in the cash generated from operations calculation because it is included in the
profit before tax and it is included as a separate line item on the cash flow statement.

Proceeds from issue of share capital

This amount is calculated by deducting the opening share capital balance from the closing share capital balance. An
increase in share capital results in an inflow of cash.

Proceeds from long-term borrowings

This amount is specified in the Additional information section on the Info sheet and should include all the long term debt that
was raised during the period under review, but should exclude all the finance leases that are deducted from the property,
plant & equipment cash acquisitions total.

template.
Long term debt closing balance
Less: Long term debt opening balance
Less: Long term debt included in business acquisitions
Less: Long term debt raised
Less: Finance lease acquisitions

The calculation should be included on the cash flow statement as a negative amount because the payment of long term
debt results in an outflow of cash. The finance lease acquisitions should be excluded because this amount is set off against
the property, plant & equipment acquisitions and the long term debt raised is deducted because it is included in a separate
line item on the cash flow statement.

Cash Flow Statement Control Total

The cash balance control total in row 32 on the Direct sheet and row 40 on the Indirect sheet has been included in order to
highlight an imbalance between the closing cash balance on the balance sheet and the closing cash balance on the cash
flow statement. If an imbalance is encountered on one of these sheets, the appropriate cells in this row will be highlighted in
orange.
