All funds anticipated to be deposited into an account are recorded as debits. A credit is a list of all funds anticipated to leave an account. Debits and credits essentially keep track of where the money in your company is coming from and departing.
Many companies run their operations out of a cash account, or a corporate bank account that contains their liquid assets. When a business pays an expense out of its own pocket, the cash account is credited as funds are being removed from it to pay the expense. This indicates that the expense is being debited since the money credited from the cash account is paying for it.
