Cash Flow Statements
According to FASB ASC 230, Statement of Cash Flows, the primary objective of a statement of cash flows is to provide relevant information about the cash receipts and cash payments of an entity during a period. The information provided in a statement of cash flows, if used with related disclosures and information in the other financial statements, should help investors, creditors, and others (including donors).
