TRIAL BALANCE WORKSHEET

Definition

The trial balance is a report listing the ending debit and credit balances in all
accounts at the end of a reporting period. The trial balance has three uses:

1. Debits equal credits. The total of all debits should equal the total of all
credits, resulting a report balance of zero.
2. Worksheet. Depending on the report format, the trial balance can be used
as a worksheet for planning adjusting entries.
3. Source of financial statements. The information on the report can be
aggregated to create the financial statements, though accounting software
handles this task automatically.

How to use this tool


This is intended to be a simple and practical tool to be adjusted and used by
SMEs working in all sectors. You may adapt it to reflect your business needs,
type of clientele, products and services you offer.
Fill in the white cells, totals will be calculated automatically
