debit is the money that you directly get and credit is what is owed to you but not yet paid in full. I remember debit by think debit as direct and I remember credit as “coming” as in not yet collected in full. credit increases libilities and debit decreases, I link the two d’s from debit and decrease to help me remember. in assets its the opposite debit increases assets and credit decreases. debit is on the right side and credit is on the left, I remember this by thinking “ALright! I got money” and credit as ” oh come on how much time left”


The terms debit and credit are polar opposites. On one hand, is debit which means that the amount in that section increases. On the other hand, is credit which means that the amount in that section decreases. There are scenarios where the two can be reversed and credit increases and debit decreases like for example on a liability account. As for remembering the two terms I am on track to learn them as long as I continue to study them. However, I do know that debit is on the left and credit is on the right which is a start.
