Xero released a statement of cash flows report, a flexible way for users to generate a report summarizing the cash flow of a business and informing decisions around cash flow management.

The cash flow statement looks at all cash receipts and cash expenditure, grouping money going in and out of the user’s business into useful categories.

Additionally, the statement of cash flows enables Xero users to answer critical questions about their cash, like whether they are generating a cash surplus and if a cash drop is due to certain investments.

The cash flow statement breaks down into three sections:

  • Cash flows from operating activities, showing what cash has come in and gone out as a result of business activities
  • Cash flows from investing activities, including payments for new assets and receipts from the sale of assets and investments made
  • Cash flows from financing activities, showing any loan repayments, proceeds from new loans or money invested in or taken out of the business

Users can modify the layout of the statement of cash flows report using the drag and drop interface. The report can also be split into its debits and credits using the layout editor.
More information about the report is available in the Xero help center.
