    There is no easy way to find an error in a trial balance without look at each entry and finding which one is out of balance. There are two tricks though. First, take the difference and divide it by 9, if it comes out without decimals then it may be a transpostional error. For example, if you recorded 69 when it should have been 96 then the difference is 27 and if you divide it by 9 you get 3. The second, is divide the difference by two and search for that number because you may have recorded a debit instead of a credit.

    opening balances are taken from the last year balance sheet. O.K
    Take the last year balance sheet and verify whether all the balances are incorporated correctly or not.
