  12. Errors that have no effect on the trial balance totals include: These errors will cause the trial balance totals to disagree resulting in one side being larger than the other. When the trial balance totals do not agree a suspense account is created as a temporary means of getting the totals to be the same. The difference is normally caused by several errors. Each error must be corrected with the aid of a suspense account.
