Have a question about balancing the balance sheet.

I am preparing all records for my 2nd year Corporate Tax Filing (Year 2016) and trying to balance the balance sheet. In my balance sheet, I have accurately added all entries including (Prepaid Expenses, Prepaid Tax, Cash in Hand, GST recievable, Fixed assets minus accumulated amortization). On the Liability Side, I have all the accounts payable and my retained earnings from my income statement. I am still struggling to balance the balance sheet inspite of the fact that all entries are correct.

I am wondering if anywhere i have to add the cash balance from the previous year as well or only worry about 2016 cash balances. 

Thanks in advance.

People come to ProFile for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
