Cash Flow from Financing Activities

What is Cash Flow from Financing Activities?

Cash flows from financing activities result in a change in either equity or borrowings. They include cash flows out to service loan repayments and payment of dividends to the owners, and cash flow in from the proceeds of loans, capital from the owners, bonds, mortgages and other short-term or long-term borrowings.

If we look at the basic cash flow statement below, the highlighted elements represent the main components of cash flow from financing activities of the business.

The net amount is a result of the cash flowing into the business from the proceeds of the issue of new capital (12,000) and new debt (26,000), offset by the cash flowing out of the business to make debt repayments (8,000) and dividend payments (2,000).
