Cash Flow Statement
The Cash Flow Statement is the part of the Company Accounts which shows the company's net inflows and outflows of cash on a month by month basis. The net cash can be positive or negative, depending whether in a particular month the company receives a net inflow of cash or spends a net outflow of cash.
The cash flow statement tends to be less popular with investors for analysing a company's health than the balance sheet and profit and loss statement, but can show periods during the trading year where a company may be dependent on creditors to fund their ongoing operations, or periods where the company is dependent on particular seasonal effects for a large portion of their earnings (such as the Christmas period and retailers).
