Model De Prezentare A Fluxurilor De Numerar Dezvoltat Prin Metoda Directă



    (Universitatea de Vest – Timișoara)


The information supplied by the cash-flow statement represents an important basis in the decision-making process for all the stakeholders of the company. The utility of the cash-flow statements built through the direct method is superior to that of the cash-flow statements built through the indirect method, but the direct method is employed with a significantly lower frequency because of the difficulty in accessing the required accounting data. A study conducted over a sample of 50 companies from the Timis County concerning the methods employed for the construction of the cash-flow statement reflects o preference for the direct approach in forecasts, as in such situations the accounting data is easier to collect. Still, in practice, the cash-flow statements developed through the direct method are often incomplete, which makes the explanation of the cash variation impossible. The current study proposes a cash-flow statement model developed through the direct method and tested through simulations within a software application specially conceived for this purpose.
