    Profit or Loss is not a cash (cash affecting) transactions.

    When preparing a Statement of cash flow, one would start at net profits from operations.(PBTI)

    To arrive at PBIT profits are added to it / Losses are deducted from it.

    But because these are non-cash items you need to adjust PBIT by deducting profits and adding back any losses.

    Remember the profit/loss will be taken into account later on the statement of cash flow when the proceeds from sales is added and Purchases are deducted.

    The same applied with the depreciation figure. - Add back the depreciation to PBTI.

    Hope this helps
