Acct 301 Project part Two (part one is attached for your review)
The company I have chosen for my SEC 10-K project is Costco.
Please see link below.
Continuing the analysis requested by your employer, and following Accounting Principles: A Business Perspective by Roger H. Hermanson, James Don Edwards, and Michael W. Maher, evaluate your SEC company’s Statement of Cash Flows.
As you complete this project consider how you would explain the concepts in general and then, specifically, use examples related to your SEC 10-K company’s statement of cash flow.
What is included in the statement of cash flows? Following the pattern used for the Balance Sheet, describe each section. Explain what specific account types from the balance sheet are included in each section and what information from the income statement is displayed in the operating activities section.
