A party must ensure that it refers, when communicating with a counterparty, to the appropriate borrower/debtor in the capital structure of a business family and must: (i) if there has been a payment or late payment under the credit contract; (ii) if the credit contract provides guarantees (and if collateral is pledged or is granted to lenders, if a party is ordered to pay a fee upon the acquisition of that debt in order to remain in good shape after the conclusion of the trading)8; (iii) the status of an insolvency proceeding (if any) with respect to the borrower/debtor; (iv) transfer obligations imposed by the current credit agreement (e.g.B. the company purchasing the loans may have a legal right or the parties will be required to pay an equity or sub-participation); v) the law applicable to the credit contract (for example. B may prohibit or limit certain companies that become lenders); and (vi) the borrower`s organizational sovereignty (z.B. may be subject to withholding tax on payments, depending on the borrower`s jurisdiction).
