Cash flow statement

How do you approach the producing a cash flow statement (for 3 months) when information is limited.

You are given the opening (£4,000) and closing cash balances (£33,000).

However prior to the period £15,000 is owed by debtors and at the end of month 2 debtors now owe £40,000 however no indication is given of debtors terms.

Sales are £24,000 (month 1) £26,000 (month 2) and £27,000 (month 3)

In the notes it says capital payments have been made but no indication of the amount has been given.

    first workout the net cash inflow for the 3 months

    o/debtors plus 3 months sales less c/debtors.

    now you can work out the net cash out flow for the 3 months by:

    o/bank bal plus 3 months net cash inflow less c/bank balance.

    You won'tbe able to do a 3 individual cash flow statement but you can now produce a 3 month combined cash flow

    opening bank bal
    plus net cash inflow
    less net cash outflow
    equals c/bank balance

    could you just clarify this:

    o/bank bal plus 3 months net cash inflow less c/bank balance.


    as i am still not arriving at the £33,000 closing cash balance

    cash inflow = 4+24+26+27-33=48

    cash outflow = 4+48-33=19

    cash flow

    o/bank bal.................................... 4
    plus cash inflow ...........................48
    less cash outflow ........................-19

    equals closing bank balance
