The central bank of the country is the Federal Reserve Bank, born after the passage of the Federal Reserve Act in 1913, which determines in advance how to solve its competing interests and how to cooperate in the service of their common borrower. In a typical scenario, there are two creditors participating in a particular agreement: a senior(s) and a senior and subordinated debtin subordinated lender (junior) To understand priority and subordinated debt, we must first check the capital stack. Capital Stack evaluates the priority of different funding sources. Priority and subordinated debts refer to their rank in a company`s capital stack. In the event of liquidation, the priority debt will be paid first. However, in some circumstances, there may be more than two priority lenders. In such cases, another agreement must be defined between them. The signed agreement must be confirmed by a notary and registered in the official county registers in order to be enforceable. A subordination agreement is a legal document that establishes that one debt is ranked behind another in priority for the recovery of a debtor`s repayment. Debt priority can become extremely important when a debtor is in arrears with payments or goes bankrupt.
If your business is in arrears with payments due to debts, creditors will assert claims against the company`s cash or assets. Priority debts are first entitled to payment if there is not enough money to go to all debtors.
