Q: What are credit accounts and could you show me a sample?

Credit accounts are any accounts that normally occur on the right side, as credit means right side.

Examples of credit accounts:

  • Capital (owner's equity)

  • Bank loan (liability)

  • Creditors (liability)

  • Bank overdraft (liability - you owe the bank)

See the lesson on T-accounts for more information.
