INVESTOPEDIA EXPLAINS 'Average Collected Balance'

The average collected balance is used to determine the amount of interest to be paid on a monthly balance, since uncollected funds do not earn interest.  For most individuals, the difference between the average daily balance and average collected balance will be small, but for businesses it may be very large.
