Open the file CASHFLOW from the website for this book at cengagebrain.com. First, enter the formulas. Then, complete the worksheet in the manner described next.
According to the problem, cash increased from $39,600 to $67,210 during the year. This is a $27,610 increase. To record this increase on the worksheet, move to row 17. Since this is the first account you are analyzing, enter the letter a in column C. Then enter 27610 in column D (a debit since cash increased). This brings the year-end balance (column G) to $67,210, its proper balance.
Now move to the bottom part of the statement where you see the categories Operating Activities, Investing Activities, and so on. The credit side of the entry has to be entered here. The proper space for this cash entry is on row 59. Enter the letter a in cell E59 and 27610 in cell F59. Notice the totals at the bottom of the page (row 60) now agree.
The next account balance that changed is accounts receivable. It increased by $9,035. To enter this change on the worksheet, enter the letter b in cell C18 and 9035 in cell D18 (again, a debit since accounts receivable increased). This brings the year-end balance in column G to $121,250, its proper balance. The change in accounts receivable balance is an operating activity adjustment (as explained in your textbook). Enter the credit side of this entry in cells E34 and F34, and enter the explanation Increase in accounts receivable in cell A34. Note: Your textbook probably shows "Net income" as the first item under Operating Activities. We will get to that later. The sequence in which you enter items on this worksheet is not important.
All other balance sheet accounts must be analyzed in the same manner, placing appropriate debit or credit entries in the top part of the worksheet to obtain the proper balances in column G, and then entering the second side of the entry in the appropriate row on the bottom part of the worksheet. You should use letter references to identify all entries. Also, you must enter a description of the entry in column A under the appropriate activity category. Although a sequence of analyzing the balance sheet from top to bottom is suggested here, this order is not necessary. As mentioned earlier, your textbook may specify a different sequence. Also, note that some accounts may have both debit and credit adjustments to them.
The worksheet is not a substitute for a statement of cash flows, but it does provide you with all the numbers you need to properly prepare one.
You will be done with your analysis when:
a. The individual account balances at December 31, 2013, as shown on the worksheet (column G) equal those shown in the given problem data.
b. The transaction column totals are equal (cells D60 and F60).
c. The sum of the operating, investing, and financing activities (cell G59) equals the change in cash (cell D59 or F59).
When you are finished, enter your name in cell A1. Save your completed file as CASHFLOW2. Print the worksheet when done. Also print your formulas. Check figure: Total credits at 12/31/2013 (cell G31), $860,460.
