Zero Balance Account
Full Definition

Accounts maintained at a bank wherein there are no balances on deposit. Rather, debits are accumulated against the account for a given period of time and then a company's master account is charged for the amount of the debit balances and the ZBA account is credited, thereby bringing the balances up to a zero balance. This procedure provides cash control without the need for many bank accounts.
