What was the firm's cash flow to creditors during 2016?
The debt represents an amount that a company owes to another company and can be classified as short-term debt if the amount borrowed will be repaid within a year and if the repayment period exceeds one year, then the debt will be classified as long-term. The lender also called as creditor gets a fixed interest income on the amount lent which is nothing but the cashflow to the creditors of the company.
Answer and Explanation:
Schism, Inc's cash flow to creditors during 2016 is -$99,500.
Schism, Inc has provided that:
- Beginning balance in Long-term debt = $1,4150,000
- Ending balance in Long-term debt = $1,610,000
- Amount of Interest paid = $95,500
Cash flow to creditors = Interest paid - (Long-term debt ending balance - Long-term debt beginning balance)
Cash flow to creditors = $95,500 - ($1,610,000 - $1,4150,000)
Cash flow to creditors = -$99,500
