How Do Bank Debits Work?
Why Do Bank Debits Matter?
It is important to that deposits are liabilities to banks (they're assets to you, though). That's because they're obligations to customers. Accordingly, when you write a check, the bank's liabilities are reduced. In accounting, we would the bank's liabilities and credit the bank's balance (which also was reduced because it gave $50 to Target).
