don\'t know where I got this from, but it means the same as balance de comprobación, which is a trial balance:

- Al final de determinadas fechas (al menos trimestralmente según el artículo 28, apartado 1 del C.de C.) se preparará un Balance de Sumas y Saldos, también llamado de \"Comprobación\", que deberá de transcribirse al Libro de Inventarios y Cuentas anuales.

It\'s called a trial balance, rather than a balance sheet, because it is used to prepare the final accounts, i.e. a trial balance can be adjusted, altered, until it balances.
