Senior Debt: What Is It?
Senior debt is the debt that is paid back first if the borrower runs into trouble paying back debt. It's the lowest cost and most common funding available, often from a bank. Banks can lend money for a small percent, such as 2 to 5 percent, and in return, they get prioritized as senior debt.
Senior gets first priority and must be repaid first before any other creditors receive payments. These less important debts are called junior debts. Senior debt is typically from a bank and banks can provide you with lower interest rates (after all, they have all that "free" money that people put into their savings account that they can lend out).
This saves you big time when it comes to how much you'll pay in interest. Bank loans typically come with 2 to 5 percent in interest, whereas junior debt lenders come in at about 5 to 12 percent. As long as you make the required payments to banks on top

Bylaws are the internal legal rules applicable to a corporation and must be followed by the company, its directors, shareholders, and officers when conducting business. They are applicable to both for-profit and nonprofit corporations.
State statutes govern what bylaws can and cannot say and do, and while there are similar considerations throughout the country, every state is different. So, it’s important to consider state-specific laws when drafting bylaws.

While they may seem like a burden at times, once the company and its personnel are familiar with them and what they require, they can help the company work more efficiently by providing rules for determining how business must be conducted, how to solve pr

What Is a Condition Subsequent?
A condition subsequent (CS) is an exit clause from an existing contract. The agreement between parties includes language that frees one of them from the deal. This happens when a conditional outcome occurs. A CS relieves a party of all obligations.
What's the Purpose of a Condition Subsequent?
Think of a condition subsequent as an escape clause. It ends a party's contractual obligation. In contracts, all involved parties have certain responsibilities. The CS gives one party the ability to walk away from the promise to perform a duty.

Debt Financing: What Is it?
Debt financing is when a company raises money by taking out a loan and then repays that loan over time with interest. This is also known as borrowing on credit. It can come from selling bonds, bills, or notes to lending institutions, or from private investors who are not looking to receive equity in your business.

Debt financing is a loan that must be repaid, while equity financing is an investment of money in exchange for a stake in the company. The stake in the company is given through common shares.
When you receive money through equity financing, you are giving up a small pi
