Topic 8 Suggested Solutions to Tutorial Questions
Chapter 13
Discussion Qu 1
Managing cash flow is important because in our economy cash is the medium of exchange
by which business is done. An enterprise must have sufficient cash inflow to cover its need
for cash outflow to pay bills, buy new assets, pay dividends and so on. In the short run, or at
difficult times of the year, managing cash flow may be more important than managing
overall performance as measured by the accrual-basis income statement.

Discussion Qu 2
Yes. A company can show good net profit, but if it does not collect its accounts receivable,
or if it buys too much inventory, so cash is either not coming in from customers or is tied up
in inventory, the cash from operations can be smaller than net profit.

Discussion Qu 6
a Cash received from customers
Cash paid to suppliers
Cash paid for taxes
b Issue of shares, dividend distributions, i.e. payment of borrowings or increase in
c Purchase of property, plant and equipment
Acquisition of other companies
Sale of property, plant and equipment

Discussion Qu 7
Cash flow from operations can be negative when net profit is positive because of differences
between cash and accrual amounts, e.g. if a company purchases inventory for $1000 cash
and sells it on credit for $1500 but at the end of the period has not received that amount then
cash flow from operations would be negative
$1000 while accrual profit would be plus $500.
