The prior year cashflow figures are calculated from the prior year and prior year 2 trial balance figures.

You can enter the prior year figures into the blue cells on the worksheet and they will feed directly into the prior year Cashflow Statement.

If this is not the first year producing accounts in Caseware, and the trial balance has three or more years worth of data, you can use the Cashflow Worksheet as per the current year.

8. Use the dropdown menu to select Worksheet.

The worksheet will appear as below, with figures pre-populated from the prior year/prior year 2 trial balance.
