Secured Debt

  • 3 min read

What is Secured Debt?

Secured debt is a debt that's secured by pledging an asset for collateral. It means someone took on a debt and backed it with a piece of property they own. The lender puts a lien on the asset that's been pledged, giving them the ability to legally take the asset if the debt is defaulted on.

Common examples of a secured debt include a mortgage and a car loan. The car or the house become the security asset for the debt that you took on. If you default on the payments for any reason, the lender has the right to take you to court in order to recover the asset.

A lender usually requires the asset be maintained and/or insured to a set standard in order to maintain asset value. For example: a lender who issues an auto loan requires the borrower to obtain a specific type and level of insurance coverage. In t

Net 30: What Is it?

Net 30 is an invoice payment phrase that means the customer must pay the entirety of their bill in 30 days or fewer. Often if the customer does not pay within the 30 day period, interest is charged.

Not all clients will understand what net 30 means, so it is important to make a note somewhere on the invoice to let first-time clients know what is expected. If you have not received payment and the deadline for the net 30 payment is approaching, it is good practice to issue a reminder to your customer.

Advantages of Offering Net 30

  • As the seller, offering Net 30 to your customers shows that you trust them. Some large companies and government agencies demand Net 30 terms from their suppliers, so offering Net 30 terms to your clients allows you to maintain a competitive edge against other businesses in your niche.
  • As the customer, Net 30 is great because it allows you to conserve your cash flow&nbsp

Shell Corporation

  • 5 min read

What Is a Shell Corporation?

A shell corporation is a company with financial assets but no significant business activity. Shell corporations don't create products, hire employees, or generate revenue. Rather, they store money and engage in financial transactions. Shell corporations can be used for illegal purposes like money laundering or legitimate purposes like storing funds in the early stages of a startup.

Shell corporations may also be known as international business corporations, personal investment companies, phantom firms, mailbox companies, or letter-box corporations.

How Does a Shell Corporation Work?

Shell corporations hide the identities of their owners. They can be set up anonymously, letting businesses and individuals engage in financial dealings without revealing who they are.

Shell corporations are often created in tax havens. Tax havens are countries with few or no taxes on business, as well as laws against revealing b
