    Erm, actually the calculation is correct (I spent a long time checking all the figures and the calculations and then realised my mistake...)

    Last year (20x5):
    Cash and cash equivalents: 10
    Overdraft: 0

    This year (20x6):
    Cash and cash equivalents: 0
    Overdraft: 15 (it's right there in the Current Liabilities section of the BS)

    So this year's total cash and cash equivalents at the end of the year is -15! Which is exactly what the calculations in the Cashflow Statement come out to. :)

    Hope you can get a good night's sleep now! ;)
