- Sometimes when company provides easy credit terms to increase their their sales.
Affect:- Revenue increases( Income statement )
Accounts receivables increases( Balance sheet )
Both will affect (cash flow statement) items accordingly.
And when company uses difficult credit terms opposite affect will replicate.

- When company start purchasing on credit.
Affect:- Purchase increases(Income statement).
Accounts payable increases(Balance sheet).
And both will affect the cash flow statement entries as follows.

Double entry book keeping always ensures an one entry will impact 2 accounts.
