In this series, I would like to share with you what is a Trial Balance.
A Trial Balance is a worksheet whereby all the ledgers entry are entered into a debit and credit.
Let me just demonstrate it to you:
This is a Trial Balance.
A trial balnce will have a debit as well as a credit.
So a trail balance will always be balanced by the event if trail balance does not balance, then it will create a suspense account.
Let me dive in, for a cash entry, it will appear on the debit side of the TB. For creditors, it will appear on the cfredit side. DEbots it will apear on the devit side. For expenses it will appear on the debit side. And income, it will appear on the credit side.
So the trial balance will be balance on the debit as well as credit.
