Can assets not equal to liabilities and equity?

Asked by Grant Cooper

If you receive a message stating “Total assets do not equal total liabilities and equity”, it is indicating that there is an error either in the input of the data onto the balance sheet, or the information that has been entered on the tax return does not reconcile with the accounting records of the entity.
