In the field of the construction of financial ratios based on cash flow, some directions of further research were suggested: • broader implementation of cash flow statement, • construction of cash flow financial ratios comparable to accrual financial ratios, • incorporation of cause-effect relations between ratios to bankruptcy model. Finally an opinion that the so-called sign analysis of cash flow an under-explored oved in bankruptcy modeling was formed.
