    Journal and Trial Balance don't match
    I have prepared entries in a journal but when I transfer the figures over to the trial balance sheet the numbers are way off and don't balance. I don't know how to figure out what I have done wrong. Where do I start?

    First I would check to make sure you posted your debits and your credits into the proper columns in the trial Balance. If you did then I would check my Account balances.

    Another thing to do is check your journal entries. Did you post the transaction properly such as a Debit to an Asset or Exense account increased the account while a Credit to the Liability, Equity, or Revenue account increased the account while a Credit to the Asset or Expense account and a Debit to a Liability, Equity, or Revenue account Decreases the account.

    Did you post the Transaction to the proper accounts.
