When some goods are sold on credit, entry is made is the sales book.  From their every party to whom goods have been sold on credit is debited and sales account is credited with the total of credit sales made during that specific period. This is an error of PARTIAL OMISSION. As this is a one-sided error,  trial balance does not tally.
