Balace carried and brought foward

Hi all

Quick question though...ive only ever dealt with opening and closing balances for the CBE practise papers on the AAT website deal with balance bfwd and cfwd. Which one is opening and closing bal??!

Im thinking carried is opening and brought foward is closing but i am all confused.

    Brought forward is opening and carried forward is closing - just remember they go in alphabetical order.
