SQL Query Subtract

i have two columns: Beginning Balance, Ending Balance.

I would like to sum each column and then subtract. the output would be the Actual.

or the query could probably just subtract the two columns without doing the sum.

And what is the issue? Just subtract the columns from each other.
Or do you want to have the aggregated balance for e.g. each companyID?
