(n.) Account that gives little, or in most cases no interest. Holds the personal short-term money transactions. It is a fluctuating account held for either private or business reasons, sometimes at a bank, although in the case of the latter, may be held within a business. Credits to this account are share of profit, salary and interest allowed on capital account. Debits are loss of profit or drawings.
My current account statement from the bank has me overdrawn.
