Package: Intensive Accounting Boot Camp

Our three day Financial Accounting Bootcamp is specifically built as a pre-requisite for our finance, valuation, financial modeling and more complex course topics. The bootcamp is structured as an interactive discussion in which we cover definitions and terminology through examples and case studies. Oftentimes, learning and teaching accounting is associated with boring definitions; however, our approach is to tell a story, and illustrate what the numbers mean through interesting examples, not by reading slides or textbooks. We emphasize, hone and re-hone concepts via one large integrated case study in which the focus is not on debits/credits and T-accounts, but rather financial analysis. This is geared towards those with little to no accounting background (i.e. liberal arts majors) and is perfect as a refresher of the most important concepts for those having previously taken "Accounting 101" courses.

Tax effects on cash flow
On pg.263, Exercise 1, the answer is the cash flow will not be influenced by the deferral cost. But shouldn't the effect on taxes be considered? So that a higher pre-tax income leads higher tax payments and then a lower cash flow. Looking forward to your reply!
