Scenario

You presently work for Ford Motor Company in the Accounting and Reporting department. As part of the annual requirements of a publicly traded company, an external auditing firm just completed the required audit on Ford’s financial statements.

You have been assigned the task of analyzing procedures for developing the statement of cash flows.

In the procedures:

  • Define the components of the operating section of the statement of cash flows and which accounts an employee should evaluate to develop this section.

  • Define the components of the investing section of the statement of cash flows and which accounts an employee should evaluate to develop this section.
