Debit

A debit, in the context of double-entry bookkeeping, is an accounting entry to reflect increase in assets or expenses, or decrease in liabilities or income. Debits are equal and opposite to credits in a journal entry. For example, when a motor vehicle is purchased by a company for cash, the debit is to the asset account of the motor vehicle and credit is to the cash account.
