So I know that bank goes into debit on the statement of financial position, where does cash go, SFP or SPL?

    Under cash on hand or bank. If you are using software to generate SFP it will class them for you.

    If the balance is positive put it in debit side if negative in credit side.

    Cash is an asset so it goes into the SFP

    The cash goes under bank on the SFP as it is an asset and more readily available in theory than money in the bank. It will never have a credit balance (you can't have minus cash) but you can with a bank account when it becomes overdrawn and becomes a liability.
