Account balance

The amount of money you have in your account at a particular time.

Sometimes a balance given by a bank will include payments that have been made to your account, but are not yet available because they haven’t cleared. This means that the money has not been received by the bank and is not available to spend. The money that you can spend is sometimes called your available funds or available balance.

Added Value Account

An Added Value Account is a current account that offers a package of additional benefits for a monthly account fee. These accounts typically include travel insurance, AA Breakdown Cover and mobile phone insurance.
