A trial balance is a conglomerate of or list of debit and credit balances extracted from various accounts in the ledger including cash and bank balances from cash book. The rule to prepare trial balance is that the total of the debit balances and credit balances extracted from the ledger must tally. Because every transaction has a dual effect with each debit having a corresponding credit and vice versa.
Therefore, at the end of the accounting period or at the end of each month, the balances of the ledger accounts are extracted, and trial balance is prepared to test as to if the total debits are equal to total credits or not.
The rule to prepare the Trial balance is an equation which is as follows:
