The net income reported on an income statement for the current year was \$63,000. Depreciation recorded on fixed assets for the year was \$24,000. Balances of the current asset and current liability accounts at the end and beginning of the year are listed below. Prepare the Cash flows from operating activities section of the statement of cash flows using the indirect method. Use the minus sign to indicate cash out flows, cash payments, decreases in cash, or any negative adjustments.

Net income                                                                             \$63,000

Add/lesss profit/loss from sale of assets                              \$0,000

Increase or decrease in treade payable  \$ 0,000             \$ 0,000

Net cash flow from operating activities                               \$87,000

Explanation:

Cash flows can be prepared in two ways; using direct method or indirect method.

irrespective of the method adopted, the major component of the cash flow statment that changes is the operating activities. under the indirect method, the operating activities starts with the net income. since the net income usually net of none-cash movement items like; depreciation, amortisation and impairment, these will be added back to the net income. Also investment activities items like; income from investment or profit from disposal of none-current assets are deducted. Further, movements in working capital (Inventory, trade receivables and trade payable) are net off and the resultant value is used to adjusted the net income too. This gives the net income from operating activities.

1. Ira Schwab opens up a Schwab IRA and places \$2,000 in his retirement account at the beginning of each year for 10 years. He believes the account will earn 5 percent interest per year, compounded quarterly. How much will he have in his retirement account in 10 years?

He will have \$102,979 in his retirement account in 10 years.

Explanation:

Annual Payment = \$2,000

Number of Year = n = 10

Interest rate = i = 5%

Compounded Quarterly

Future value after 10 years

FV = A [ ( ( 1 + ( r / m )^mt ) - 1 / ( r / m )

FV = \$2,000 [ ( ( 1 + ( 0.05 / 4 )^40 ) - 1 / ( 0.05 / 4 )

Future value = \$102,979

So, Ira Schwab will have \$102,979 in his retirement account in 10 years.

Investment A costs \$10,000 today and pays back \$11,500 two years from now. Investment B costs \$8,000 today and pays back \$4,500 each year for two years. If an interest rate of 5% is used, which alternative is superior

Investment  A

Explanation:

We need to find the NPV of two investments

NPV (A) = -10000 + 11500(P/F, 5%, 2)

= -10000 + 11500*0.90703

= 431

NPV (B) = -8000 + 4500(P/A, 5%, 2)

= -8000 + 4500*1.8594

= 367

Since NPV (A) > NPV (B) we select alternative A.

The company's 2016 income statement showed a depreciation expense of \$332,000.What was the company's net capital spending for 2016? (Enter your answer in dollars, not millions of dollars, e.g., 1,234,567. Do not round intermediate calculations and round your answer to the nearest whole number, e.g., 32.)

Answer: Company's net capital spending for 2016 = \$702,000
