Set-Off Rights Can Protect Some Creditors

creditor.jpgBusiness bankruptcy cases are challenging for all parties involved, including the creditors. This especially true for businesses that became a creditor without ever actually lending money. For instance, when a company enters bankruptcy, it often has active accounts payable or accounts receivable with other companies. This leads to some businesses becoming creditors in bankruptcy without ever engaging in the traditional lending business. It can also create a situation where a company both owes money and is owed money, by a company in bankruptcy. This creates a very confusing legal situation. Fortunately, a concept known as 'set-off rights' found under Section 553 of the Bankruptcy Code can help to clarify the situation.
