  4. Before preparing the final reports, you will first need to check that the Trial Balance is correct and that the Debits and Credits balance. Refer to the instructions on the next page

Before preparing the required financial reports, Jane has asked you to the check the Trial Balance as she is aware that there are some errors, and as a result she can’t get the Trial Balance to balance!

When you have identified the errors, make a note of them in the space provided below, and make the alterations in the Trial Balance, so that it balances and can then be relied on to prepare the Financial Reports.

Check the corrections with Jane (aka your teacher) and have her approve the corrections before proceeding to prepare the reports.
