Also asked, is cash flow statement cumulative?

Your company's cash flow statement reflects cash flows into and out of the company from sales, investing and financing activities. You add the net cash from this period to the prior period's cash to determine your company's cumulative cash flow.

Furthermore, how do you calculate cumulative cash flow on a payback period? The payback period is usually expressed in years. Start by calculating net cash flow for each year: net cash flow year one = cash inflow year one cash outflow year one. Then cumulative cash flow = (net cash flow year one + net cash flow year two + net cash flow year three).
