DEFINITION of 'Debit Ticket'

An accounting entry recorded as a debit that acknowledges money owed. When payment is received a corresponding credit is entered to cancel the debit.

BREAKING DOWN 'Debit Ticket'

An example is when a bank processes a check to be deposited into a customer's account. The bank treats the check as a cash item and credits the funds to the customer's account and writes a debit ticket, charged to the general ledger, while waiting to receive payment from the bank account against which the check was written.
