Place it in the section that makes the cash flows in each section total to the amounts given.
2. What does the placement of interest paid tell you about the GAAP used by CSR Limited? That is, does it report under IFRS or U.S. GAAP? Where would the interest paid be shown in a statement of cash flows using the other GAAP (IFRS or U.S. GAAP)?
3. Explain why CSR places interest paid where it does. Also explain why interest paid might be placed in the alternative section you indicated in requirement 2.
