Cash Flow Statement

For the year 2018

Net Income \$210,000

Increase in Accounts receivable (\$9,000)

Decrease in Accounts Payable (\$5,000)

Net Cash Flow from operating

activities \$196,000

Working Note:

Increase or decrease in Accounts Receivable = Jan 1 - Dec 31

= \$35,000 - \$44,000

= (\$9,000)

Therefore, it is an increase in accounts receivable

Decrease or increase in Accounts Payable = Jan 1 - Dec 31

Therefore, there is decrease in accounts payable.
