Lecture #4: How to Make Statement of Cash Flows Step By Step
Why IAS 7 and the statement of cash flows?
A statement of cash flows shows its readers where the cash of the company was generated and how it was spent.
For example, 2 companies might show the same increase in cash over the year.

The other one might have generated cash in investing activities (by sale of property) and show deficits in its operating part. Which one would you invest in?
