How to translate “na koncie” / “na konto”

In English the phrase on a bank account is ALWAYS WRONG!

Payments are made into a bank account;
money is transferred to a bank account;
and, once a payment or transfer has been made, money is in a bank account.

    There is one situation where the preposition ‘on’ does make sense – “The amount has appeared on your bank account.”

    It is limited to the verb “appeared’, and I believe is a shortening of “The amount has appeared on your bank account statement”.

    In this example, it would be incorrect to say “The amount has appeared in your bank account statement.”

    This is quite common usage in Australia and New Zealand at this time.
