21. The statement of cash flows may assist in determining the ability of an entity to: 

  1. generate cash flows.
  2. obtain internal finance.
  3. meet its financial commitments to customers.
  4. generate cash flows and meet its financial commitments to customers.

22. AASB 107 defines cash equivalents to include: 

  1. highly liquid investments with short periods to maturity that are readily convertible to cash on hand at the investor's option and are subject to an insignificant risk of changes in value.
  2. term borrowing.
  3. working capital items such as prepayments and accruals
  4. highly liquid investments with short periods to maturity that are readily convertible to cash on hand at the investor's option and are subject to an insignificant risk of changes in value and term borrowing.

23. Accounts that represent cash or cash equivalents include: 

  1. bank overdrafts.
  2. accounts receivable.
  3. short-term money market deposits.
  4. bank overdrafts and short-term money market deposits.

24. AASB 107 states that for a money market deposit to be classified as cash: 

  1. it must normally have a maturity of 3 months or less from the date of acquisition.
  2. it must be scheduled to mature within the operating cycle of the entity.
  3. it must normally mature 3 months or less from balance date.
  4. it must be within 1 month of maturing at balance date.

25. An item considered to be a cash equivalent in one company may not be considered as such in another. This is because: 

  1. the operating cycle varies between companies.
  2. companies have different balance dates and this will affect the measurement of the term to maturity.
  3. companies use highly liquid items for purposes other than as part of their cash-management function.
  4. the working capital management policies of companies vary so an item may be considered very liquid in one company and not in another.

26. Investing activities are defined by AASB 107 as those that: 

  1. relate to the changing size or composition of the capital management structure of the entity.
  2. relate to the acquisition or disposal of inventory.
  3. relate to the acquisition and/or disposal of non-current assets and other investments not included in cash equivalents.
  4. relate to changes in capital or liabilities used to fund long-term assets.

27. What method does AASB 107 encourage for the reporting of cash flows from operating activities and what does it mean for the presentation of this category in the statement of cash flows? 

  1. The derivative method is required. This means that the amounts are presented as increases or decreases in balance sheet working capital accounts.
  2. The indirect method is required. This means that the cash flows are presented as accrual amounts from the operating section of the statement of comprehensive income adjusted for non-cash effects.
  3. The direct method is required. This means that the gross cash flows from operating items are presented.
  4. Either the derivative or the direct method is required. For the derivative method this means that the amounts are presented as increases or decreases in the statement of financial position or for the direct method, this means that the gross cash flows from operating items presented is permitted.

28. Where the entity uses the direct method a note to the accounts reconciling cash flows from operating activities to net profit is required because: 

  1. complex calculations are required to convert cash-based revenues.
  2. items such as depreciation are only recorded in a cash system and not an accrual system.
  3. there is likely to be a disparity between cash flows from operations under AASB 107 and the profits reported in the statement of comprehensive income.
  4. the direct method is required under AASB 107.

29. Items that must be separately disclosed in the statement of cash flows include: 

  1. cash sourced from derivative instruments.
  2. borrowing costs.
  3. income taxes paid.
  4. borrowing costs and income taxes paid.

30. AASB 107 requires that a note to the accounts shall disclose a reconciliation of cash flows from operating activities to operating profit or loss after income tax as reported in the statement of comprehensive income. The correct adjustments to the operating profit/loss after tax include: 

  1. add; depreciation expense, gain on sale of plant and equipment, increase in interest payable, increase in inventories.
  2. subtract; increase in future income tax benefit, increase in accounts receivable, loss on sale of plant and equipment.
  3. add; increase in accounts payable, increase in income taxes payable, increase in deferred taxes payable.
  4. subtract; amortisation expense, increase in future income benefit, increase in interest payable.

31. AASB 107 requires disclosure of information about transactions and events that do not result in cash flows during the financial year, including: 

  1. a commitment under an operating lease.
  2. the use of forward exchange contracts to hedge purchases.
  3. acquisition of assets by entering into finance leases.
  4. liquidation of investments.
