Notes One of the Oxford Dictionaries definitions of ACCOUNT is "a report or description of an event or experience".

An ACCOUNT then is a collection of information that relates to one or more EVENTs. Those EVENTs will have an ITEM in common in a role and thus the ACCOUNT becomes a history of information about that role.
Examples * A Customer Account at a business
* The history of a Building
* Regular welfare payments to a claimant
* A Medical History of a patient
* Transactions that have been posted to a budget.
