A Trial Balance displays a list of ledger accounts with the total amounts of all transactions which are posted on each general ledger account. Each of these general ledger accounts contains the detailed transactions which represent the amounts. A Trial Balance  must balance to R0.00.

In the system, there are a few additional options available on the trial balance which are not available in any other accounting systems. This guide will help you to understand these options better.
