02 million and represents an indirect payment of cash since the business is allowing credit and making an advance payment. 12 million. 1. Michael Owen Limited started to trade on 1 August 1997 using the £500,000 share capital it received from Michael Owen. This allowed the business to incur costs and to generate revenues as summarized in the profit and loss account for the year to the end of July 1998. As a result of both financing and trading transactions, the company also generated cash inflows and outflows as summarized in the cash flow statement.

In cases where the ownership of the share capital lies between 0 and 20 per cent, the investment is called a ‘trade investment’. The group owning the trade investment – not relevant in the case of Unilever – only records its share of the dividends received in the group profit and loss account. CURRENT ASSETS Stocks Stocks are valued at their historical cost or realizable value, whichever is the lower. For example, if the market value of a commodity such as cocoa or oil is lower than the original purchase cost, this will result in a stock loss and a fall in operating profit.

For individual years, however, there may well be a cash surplus or a cash deficit according to the strategic requirements of the business. Bass, for example, had negative cash flow before financing – a cash deficit of £148 million – in 1996 when there were relatively small asset disposals but significant capital expenditure and the acquisition of Carlsberg Tetley. In 1997, the situation reversed because there were large-scale asset and business disposals so that the cash flow before financing moved from a deficit to a surplus of £404 million.
