davcer under ifrs it also can be cfo
chris297 Under US GARP, it must be CFO. Under IFRS, it could also be CFI as well as CFO. So we assume IFRS if the question does not state which accounting standard should be followed.
cmacewen Christ that is incorrect ; under US GAAP dividends paid must be classed as CFF - it is under IFRS that they may be classed as either CFO or CFF. We also assume US GAAP unless stated so please don't spread spurious information with such hubris.
