Požadavky na vykazování informací o peněžních tocích v české legislativě a jejich vývoj v čase
Český finanční a účetní časopis, 2020, vol. 2020, issue 3-4, 5-23
Although the benefits of the Statement of Cash Flows for its users are indisputable, historically this statement has not been captured in the Czech legislation to a major extent. The aim of the paper is to describe and evaluate the quality of cash flows reporting as required by the Czech legislation as well as its evolution over time and its future development. The research methodology is based on comparative analysis. It can be concluded that the Statement of Cash Flows holds exceptionally weak position in the Czech accounting legislation over time. For the first ten years, it had not been mentioned in the legislation at all; after its introduction only a very little number of significant subsequent changes was made. Moreover, not even the current discussions on the new concept of accounting legislation do not indicate any intention to reconsider the approach to such an important statement.
