There are few points that should be kept in mind before creating a balance sheet:

  • Importance of Trial balance: Before preparing the balance sheet, a firm needs to create the trial balance. All entries in the trial balance will finally tally at the end. Those are recorded in the balance sheet. If the trial balance fails to tally then the excess balance will be written under suspense account then appears to balance sheet. The balance sheet will have all accounts exactly as they are in trial balance i.e. debit and credit entries of trading account, profit and loss account will come in debit and credit sides of the balance sheet.
  • Common entries in balance sheet: There are some common entries that appear in the debit or credit side always, such as:
  1. Direct expenses and indirect expenses appear in trading account and Profit and Loss account. They are tallied in the balance sheet exactly as they were in the first place.
  2. Direct expenses such as factory expenses are written under the debit side of trading account.
  3. Indirect expenses such as office expenditure are written under the debit side of Profit and Loss account.
  4. There are other expenses such as rent, discount or interest that are paid in favor of the production. These are written under the debit side of Profit and Loss account. In other cases, if these amounts are received then they are written under credit side of the Profit and Loss account.
