So very important why is it not taught in schools or colleges in fact current education system across the world does not teach people about money or cash flow and i am here to fathom the reason why probably they think money is the root of all evil or something i don’t know however not knowing cash flow can be seriously hazardous to your financial health so here we

Go today in very brief i will explain what cash flow is and how cash flow works friends in my best-selling book finance for non finance there is a complete chapter dedicated to cash flow where i have very loosely explained that cash flow is a function of human activities and the same parallel is drawn in case of a company so when a company prepares a cash flow it

Looks at the activities which are carried on by its people inside the organization so now there are so many activities which are carried out however we focus on three primary activities which decides whether the cash is flowing in or cash is going out and what happens when cash flows from these three activities so which are these three activities activity number


One financing activity activity number two investing activity and activity number three operating activity so let us understand how money flows when he comes in and money goes out from each of these activities so if we talk about financing activities there are certain transactions which a company does with people who finance the enterprise so correctly owners and

Lenders are the primary people who transact with the enterprise and who when they given money or when they take out money those activities could be safely classified as financing activities so if i were to give you example it could be capital introduction it could be taking off a loan by the company it could be repayment of capital it could be repayment of loan

Or it could be interest paid to the lender so these are the five crisp examples of financing activities of which first two are predominantly cash inflows because capital introduction means money coming into the enterprise taking off a loan also means money coming into the enterprise but if you look at the blast three they are predominantly cash outflows capital

Repayment to the owner loan repaid to the lender or interest paid to the lender incidentally the six example also could be dividend paid to the shareholder that is also one of the primary cash outflows under financing activity let’s go to the next one investing activity so investing activity as the name correctly suggests mostly has cash outflows but also sometimes

Has cash inflows we’re all affirm invests a forms usually invests in purchasing fixed assets or investing surplus money in areas where the money may remain safe and on something more so let’s look at fixed assets any cash outflow in buying new assets be it land building plant machinery furniture fixtures vehicles would classify as a cash outflow from investing
