Definitely Closing stock for the previous year end will appear as an opening stock in the trial balance preapred on 31.3.09 because opening stock.i.e closing stock of previous year represents the amount of expense incurred durin the previous year the benefit of which will be realised in the current current period i.e.31.3.09 tb will contain the value of opening stock as on 1.4.08 and closing stock of 31.3.09 will be shown as an adjustment in the final accounts and will appear as opening stock for the next financial year

Trial balance is a list of closing balances both revenue and capital in nature as on a particular date. Therefore logically trial balance should not contain opening stock in it. In that case 'consumption' has to appear in the trial balance. Now in case opening stock needs to be shown in trial balance then 'consumption' will be replaced by 'purchase' during the period.

Hope this is clear.
