Certain accounts generally carry debit balances while other accounts (equal and opposite but not good or bad) generally carry credit balances.
* Assets generally have debit balances. Therefore, liabilities and equity accounts must have credit balances.
* Expense and loss accounts ordinarily have debit balances. Revenue and gain accounts must therefore ordinarily have credit balances.
Cash values will carry debit balances on the balance sheet.
This means that the total of all the debit balances
(assets) must equal the total of all the credit balances (liabilities).

The clearinghouse pays interest on net credit balances and charges interest to net debit balances. It pays a fixed number of basis points less than the bond interest rate.
A bank can have a net credit or a net debit balance. Favorable clearings increase a net credit or decrease a net debit balance.
A bank can buy bonds to offset a net credit balance and sell bonds to offset a net debit balance. Monitoring and transactions costs make it unlikely that a bank would continually offset random fluctuations caused by its depositors' payments.
Then, all of the accounts are listed in the order in which they appear in the ledger with one column for the debit balances and one column for the credit balances.
(Debit balances should be in the debit column and credit balances should be in the credit column.) PRACTICE WHAT YOU HAVE LEARNED Practice what you have learned about preparing a trial balance by completing Problem 3-6 at the end of the chapter.
