I know that "passivo" is "overdrawn", but what would you say if you actually had money in the bank?

credit balance current account


Explanation:
You seem to indicate that attivo, in the context, is as opposed to passivo. My suggestion refers to this assumption. If the context refers to a current accont with daily activity then it should be translated as "active" as suggested by Francesco. Ciao, PC

cash in bank(s)


Explanation:
in financial statements it is the standard expression = cash in bank(s) = banca attiva, to indicate the amount of money deposited in bank account(s) vs bank overdraft (overdrawn account) = banca passiva

Current Active Account // Cash or Cash at the Bank


Explanation:
Passivo mens Liability/ies, and the Conto corrente attivo means Current Active Account or if it appears in a Balance Sheet or other financial statement in the form of a table, it means Cash or Cash at the Bank.

current account in credit


Explanation:
While the term "active current account" exists, it means one that is being used, as opposed to a dormant account. I agree that the correct translation would be "credit-balance current account" or "current account in credit".
