A cash flow statement is a standard financial statement that shows how much cash we have on hand at any given time. While income statements are helpful in determining how much money we've spent and earned, they don't always indicate how much cash we have on hand at any given time.

When we adopt accrual accounting, we record income and costs when they are generated or incurred, rather than when the money leaves or enters our bank accounts. (We only record money in cash accounting after we have it on hand.) As a result, even if income is reflected on our income statement, we may not have the cash to pay for it. The cash flow statement corrects the information on our income statement so that we can view our net cash flow or the exact amount of cash we have on hand at any given time.
