Primary income - monthly - debit

Concept: Primary income indicates the amounts to pay or receive in exchange for the temporary use of financial resources, work, or nonproduced nonfinancial assets (i.e. salaries, investment income and other primary incomes). This account shows redistribution of income, when resources for current purposes are provided by one party without anything of economic value being supplied as a direct return to that party. Examples include personal transfers and current international assistance (BPM6 guide).
