  • Heads Up — FASB proposes guidance on cash flow classification

    published 04 Feb 2016

    This Heads Up discusses the FASB’s recently issued proposed Accounting Standards Update (ASU) Classification of Certain Cash Receipts and Cash Payments, which would amend ASC 230 to add or clarify guidance on the classification of certain cash receipts and payments in the statement of cash flows. While ASC 230 provides some guidance on certain cash payments and receipts that are classified as operating, investing, or financing activities, it lacks consistent principles for evaluating the classification of cash payments and receipts in the statement of cash flows. The proposed ASU results from consensuses reached by the FASB’s Emerging Issues Task Force on eight issues related to cash flows.
