Why increase in outstanding expense is added in cash flow statement as it does not result in any cash flow?

Dear Student,

Increase in outstanding expenses stands debit to the Statement of Profit and Loss, indicating a decline in company's profits. However, like you said there is no actual cash outflow on account of such expenses (as they are still unpaid), therefore any increase in outstanding expenses must be added back to Cash Flow from Operating Activities.
