Cash flow within a business is the difference between the number of dollars that came in and the number of dollars that went out. While no standard financial statement presents this information in a clear way, we can still calculate the cash flow. In order to have a comprehensive understanding of cash flow, we look at the following criteria:
Cash From Operating Activities
Cash From Investing Activities
Cash From Finance Activities
