Bus/Financial - Accounting / Accounting statement - Spain
Spanish term or phrase: cuentas corrientes a la vista
I do not have a lot of context to offer. The term appears by itself under a section of an accounting statement entitled "EFECTIVO Y OTROS ACTIVOS EQUIVALENTES." There is then a notation to the effect that these counts are held in institutions of "reconocida solvencia."

I do not see glossary entries for this exact term, and I am not convinced that the translations offered for "cuentas a la vista" fit here. "Sight current account" is offered for "cuenta corriente a la vista," but this does not seem to make sense.

"on-demand checking accounts" ???

Many thanks.
