Is this the same as a balance of current transactions?

list of balances
Explanation:
Perhaps you will find a better term. "Summen- und Saldenliste" is a list that contains all balances, the sum of debit-entries and the sum of credit-entries for each account.

List of balances sounds decent in my opinion. I found the term in Heyne Business Dictionary as translation for "Saldenbilanz".

receivables list


Explanation:
The totals and receivables lists as well as a (business) management analysis will be put at the company's disposal at the end of every month...

receivables (or: ledger) list = Saldenliste der Forderungen

Forderung = receivable, claim
(auch: Forderungen = accounts receivables)

balance = Saldo
current transactions = laufende Transaktionen (Umsaetze)

PS.: Vorsicht beim Uebersetzen: "current .. "
current liabilities = kurzfristige Verbindlichkeiten
current account = Verrechnungskonto, Kontokorrentkonto, laufendes Konto
current receivables = noch nicht faellige Forderungen

etc.

Hope it helps & good luck!
