Dear Nawel,

To get the report Statement of Cash flows  there are two options.

1. Direct method. This one can be implemented using SAP Liquidity Planner.

2. Indirect method. Part of the report comes from Liquidity Planner but first part of the report is not "cash based", is "accrual based". It also creates the problem of reconcilliation betwwen Cash data and accrual accounting data.

We used to get the indirect consolidated cash flow reports

The starting point is the net profit  before or after taxes (P&L). Then we add back non-cash amounts and changes in the B/S balances occured due to inflow/outflow of cash. It gives us the net cash flow from operational activities. Cash flow from financing and investing activities, as you already mentioned, are the same as in the direct method.

Thus, summing the cash effects from all three activities and applying the Effect of foreign exchange rate changes on cash and cash equivalents (if needed) we come to the Net increase (decrease) in cash and cash equivalents which in turn should be equals to difference in cash and equivalents at the end and beginning of the reporting period -- reconciliation point.

Ammu.

Dear Nawel,

Cashflow statement is developed normally as Z report, or you would like to know in general the step involved in the same.
