Trust Accounting works the same way as the Operational Account in Checkbook and Accounting. However, in the Trust Account there is a great deal of computational work performed behind the scenes: keeping track of the money paid into each clients’ account; recording the amounts and portions that are earned and portions that are not earned; and what amount of the earned funds that can be transferred out of the Trust Account into the firm’s Operational Account.

Plus the Trust Account automatically keeps track of amounts of clients’ money in each of their accounts that should be retained to pay expenses.
