What is a Withdrawal Account?

A withdrawal account is a type of account that stores cash that an owner withdraws from their company. In addition, a withdrawal account is necessary to record payments that an owner makes on their company’s behalf. The owner can also use this account to make payments for his own needs. A withdrawal account can be either a capital account or a cash account.

Withdrawals for personal use are often made in business accounts, but these should always be recorded as a separate transaction from any business spending. The type of legal structure of your business will also affect how you record the withdrawal account journal entry. For example, if you run a limited liability company or a corporation, you may be able to make personal withdrawals as long as they are not in the same capital account as the business.

A withdrawal account journal entry will show the debit and credit amount for the account. However, a withdrawal account will show a non-zero balance when the account is closed. It is important to note that a withdrawal account is temporary and can be closed after one accounting period. It is also important to note that the closing journal entry will be a compound one if several accounts need to be closed.

The withdrawal account journal entry is a record of the debit and credit amounts that are made in the business. A withdrawal account is also called a ‘drawing account’ if an owner withdraws funds for personal use. For example, a sole proprietorship will have a drawing account that shows a debit balance against the owner’s equity.
