A cession of book debts is a security undertaking that is generally utilised where one entity (for example a bank) (“the Lender“) lends and advances money (“the Loan“) to another entity (“the Borrower“), or which may in future lend and advance money to such Borrower. By concluding this cession of book debts, the Borrower agrees to transfer to the Lender, its rights, title and interest to claim monies owed to the Borrower by the Borrower’s debtors. Note that the cession of book debts can be used to cover debts that already exist and debts that may arise in future; it is structured so as to enable the Lender to claim against Borrower debtors where the Borrower defaults in loan repayments.
