    I can't really think of a difference. The "balance" is the amount remaining, regardless of whether it remains for you to spend or if it is still owing.

    Re: Outstanding balance / Remaining Balance

    They both mean basically the same thing, but from an accounting point of view "outstanding balance" usually (but not always) implies that payment is overdue. "Remaining balance" is simply the current balance due after the most recent payment.

    When a debt collector calls a person or company that owes them money and is delinquent in their payments, they usually refer to the amount owed as an "outstanding balance."
