    I think it's actually even simpler than that. If you use double-entry bookkeeping to record accounting transactions, then two entries are made for each transaction. This helps when checking the accuracy of the data recording.

    One entry in the books of account is called the Debit entry, the other is the Credit entry.

    The Credit shows where money or value has come from. The Debit shows what has been done with it.

    • Cash from the bank (credit Bank) goes to pay staff (debit Wages)
    • Loan from a supplier (credit Supplier) goes to buy goods on credit (debit Purchases)
