Joint Account

A joint account is one that is held by more than one person, and this means that both people equally share the account (so equally responsible if there is a debt on the account).

There are different types of joint account varying from country to country and can be set up in different ways; commonly the main types differentiate between a joint account set up by a married couple and one for business partners.
