A checking account is an account where cash can be quickly withdrawn with the use of checks or debit cards. A current account is a financial asset account in accounting in which assets can be easily made liquid or have a turnover period of less than a year.

what is difference between a current account and a cheque account




i am a student and wanted to open my account should i open a current account or credit account



No they do not close your Checking or Savings account



A current account is an account in which money or cheques can be taken out or payments can be made at any time.A deposit account is an account in which money is placed and left for a period of time, and interest is earned.


You can withdraw cash at your call deposit account at any time if you have a call deposit account. The current account has the sum of the income of the goods and service less the expenditure.


A call deposit account is a hybrid form of Current account and general saving account which allows us to withdraw money at any time as in current account and provides us interest on the deposit amount as in other saving account.


When I opened my checking account I had to present a current texas drivers liscense, and my social security card.


I am not a banking expert, but my understanding is that - say you have 100$ in your account and you pay in a cheque for another 100$, then your current balance will be 200$ but your available balance will be 100$ until the cheque clears (when the available balance will match the current balance). This protects the bank from someone paying in a cheque that may 'bounce' and withdrawing money that never gets put into the account.

A Current Account is a Bank Account opened in the name of a business establishment. Banks giving overdraft facilities, by checking the old transactions, if it is necessary for the establishment.Another meaning:A current account is a record of transactions between two parties, for example, between a bank and its customer or utility company and its customer.A current account is a type of bank account into which your wages are paid and you pay your debt/bill from. As compared to a deposit or savings account where you would put surplus money to earn interest on it. One would not normally pay money out of a deposit account on a regular basis.

The account balance will reflect any payments made into the account providing the account is on real time banking. So if you pay in any cheques the account balance will reflect this. The available balance will take into consideration any earmarks on the debit card which are due to debit and also any cheques you may have paid in that are at the moment still uncleared on the account.


Generally a savings account pays interest, and a checking (current) account doesn't. Also, a savings account cannot be overdrawn, but with permission, it is possible to overdraw a checking (current) account. The previous person is correct, a savings account simply lets you save your money and make a little bit at the same time. With a savings account it is a little harder to spend it since they are not typically tied to a checkbook.


A savings account is one in which you can deposit your money, but there is a limitation on the number of transactions (Both credit and debit) that you can perform on your account. You will receive a nominal interest rate of around 4% per year on the minimum monthly balance you maintain in your account. A current account is similar to your savings account with a small difference. You can have unlimited number of transactions on your account. Also you do not receive any interest on your deposit money. Savings accounts is for normal citizens and Current accounts are for businesses and organizations.


Checking Accounts are also called as Current Accounts. A checking account is one in which customers keep some money and use it for their day to day transactions. The money in this account does not earn any interest and is available for usage to the customer at all times. So the interest you may earn is either less than 1% or even 0 in many cases.


When fraud is discovered in a checking. current account, the account is frozen or restricted for further investigation to take place and after this is been done, a decision will be made to either report the person to the authorities, depending on the level of the crime.
