The cash flow statement is the most important financial statement to analyze when assessing the ability of repayment or return. The statement reconciles the changes in the cash account over two accounting periods. To prepare the statement the user must have the most recent income statement and the last two balance sheets. The statement includes three sections; operating investing, and financing activities. The operating activities section includes the cash expenses on the income statement and the net changes to current assets and current liabilities over two periods. The investing activities section includes the changes in the non-current activities section on the balance sheet. The financing activities section includes net changes in the non-current liabilities and equity sections of the balance sheet. The net changes of all three sections are combined with the beginning cash balance to determine the ending cash balance.
