ErrorsAdd commentsRectification of errors and suspense accountWhile recording the transactions in the journal, posting them to the ledgeraccounts, casting or at the time of balancing the accounts, there are chancesfor errors. Such errors are to be found out and corrected in the books of thebusinessCorrection of errors After the errors are found out from the books, thoseshould be corrected. The correction of errors is to be done by passingcorrection entries or rectification entries in the general journal.The preparation of trial balance is the test of arithmetical accuracy of theledger accounts prepared under double entry system. It proves the equalityof debit and credit.A trial balance, which agrees, indicates that for every debit there has beenan equivalent credit entry or entries. It does prove that all the entries are forthe correct amount or made to the correct accountTypes of errors which do not affect the agreement of the trial balance1. Errors of omission: Where a transaction is completely omitted from thebooks(Journal or ledger). E.g. a sales invoice $ 245 to Bolton was completelyomitted from the accounts.2. Errors of commission. Where a correct amount is entered in wrongperson’s account, for E.g. Credit purchase from C. Clint has been recorded inthe account of C. Clinton’s account.
3. Errors of principle: Where an item is entered in wrong class ofaccounts, E.g. Purchase of plant had been debited to purchase accountinstead of debiting to plant account.4. Compensating errors: Where errors cancel out each other, for E.g.Sales account was overcast by $ 500 at the same time the purchase accountwas also overcast by $500, and then the effect of these errors would cancelout in the trial balance5. Errors of original entry: Where the original figure is incorrect butrecorded in the correct original entry. Eg. Credit sales of goods$ 400 wascalculated in the invoice as $ 300 and recorded in the same journal.6. Complete reversal of entries: This occurs where the entries fortransactions are reversed- the account which should be credited is debitedand the account which should be debited is credited. Eg. The purchase ofstationery for $ 200 for cash debited to cash and credited to stationery.7. Transposition errors: Where the wrong sequence of the individualcharacters within a number was entered. E.g. An amount of a transaction $172 was entered in the accounts as $127One way to help remember the six errors is to memorize COPCORTCommissionOmissionPrincipleCompensatingOriginal entry
ReversalTranspositionTypes of errors which do affect the agreement of the trial balanceThe following errors will stop the trial balance from agreeing because debitdoes not equal to credit.1. Incorrect addition to any accounts2. Making an entry only on one side of one account i.e. Entering debit butnot credit or entering debit but not credit.3. Entering a different amount on the debit side from the amount on thecredit side4. The double entry has been inaccurate. E.g. Cash sales $15 – cash accountdebited with $5 and sales account credited with $15.5. Two debit or two credit entry has been made.Casting: means adding figures.Overcastting: means incorrectly adding a column of figures to give ananswer which is greater thanit should be.Under casting: means incorrectly adding a column of figures to give ananswer which is less than it should be.Suspense account: This is the account opened in the books of the businessto show the difference
in trial balance, when it disagrees. When the errors are found out, thecorrection is made to suspense account and it will be automaticallycancelled.Key points Nature of balances of each class of accountsAssets and expenses — always debitLiabilities and incomes — always credit To increase the balance of an account with debit balance – debit the account. To decrease the balance of an account with debit balance – credit the account. To increase the balance of an account with credit balance – credit the account.
