"Conceptual Model for Cash Flow Statement: History, Analysis and Further Development"

Supervisor: Professor Emeritus Jaan Alver, School of Business and Governance, Tallinn University of Technology, Estonia

Co-supervisor: Lehte Alver, PhD, School of Business and Governance, Tallinn University of Technology, Estonia

Opponents:

  • Professor Alla Ozeran, Accounting and Taxation Department, Faculty of Accounting and Management Taxation, Kyiv National Economic University named after Vadym Hetman, Ukraine
  • Associate professor Kertu Lääts, School of Economics and Business Administration, Faculty of Social Sciences, University of Tartu, Estonia

This thesis investigates the historical development of the cash flow statement and identifies the main reporting challenges still prevailing. The main purpose of financial statements, as defined by both the FASB and the IASB is to provide the users with comparable, verifiable, timely and understandable information for projecting future cash flows of a company. However, this study shows that there are problem areas in the preparation of the cash flow statement, which diminish its usefulness for the users.
