If you use positive numbers to represent money which you have or are owed (credit), then use negative numbers to represent debits.

Remember, though, that sometimes the choice of which of the two is positive is arbitrary and depends on you. If I owe you money, the situation would be represented by a negative number in my accounts but a positive entry in yours.

Would a deposit appear on your bank statement as a credit?

For example, you open a checking account with $500: Opening Balance $500 this is a credit (+) You write a check for $25 this is a debit (-) You write a check for $82 this is a debit (-) You make a deposit of $250 this is a credit (+) You write a check for $28 this is a debit (-) Your balance is $615 If you were to write a check for more than your balance of $615, then you would have a negative (-) balance.
