Jerry Ling asked 5 years ago

Hi Rusmin/Victor,
For cash flow statement, especially in operating activities, why gain record as negative while expense record as positive, for example:
Interest expense = +
Interest income = –
Gain on disposal of plant and equipment = –
Isn’t it will affected the calculation of gain in cash & cash equivalents? 
Can’t really get the rational behind so need find sifu liao. 
Hope for advise. Thank you.

Hi Jerry, 
 
Can you let me know which annual report you are looking at so I can go through it and use it as reference when explaining to you.
