Trial Balance

The Trial Balance report is a summary of all accounts for the Organisation at a point in time. Totals Debits should always equal Total Credits. You can drill down to individual line items for each account by clicking on the amount. This is an easy way to check and verify the underlying transactions of each account balance .

All reports in AccountsPortal are created in real time and there is no need to process any end-of-year journals. This means that Retained Earnings will be automatically calculated for prior financial years, and the Profit and Loss reflected in the Trial Balance will therefore always pertain to the current financial year only. Accordingly, it is critical that the correct financial year-end has been specified in the Organisation's Financial Settings.
