UCC Security Interests in Payment Intangibles: Intercompany Debt, Promissory Notes, and Debt Obligations
Perfecting Interests in Financial Instruments and Contractual Payment Obligations
Recording of a 90-minute premium CLE video webinar with Q&A
This CLE course will examine the treatment of UCC security interests in debt obligations, intercompany loans, promissory notes, and other payment intangibles under the UCC. The program will guide counsel in creating and perfecting security interests in these contractual payment obligations.
- Article 9 definition of payment intangibles
- Specific types of payment intangibles (commercial loans, intercompany loans, and loans called promissory notes, but that are payment intangibles)
- Difference between a payment intangible, an account, chattel paper, and true promissory notes
- Pitfalls facing secured parties with automatic perfection
The panel will review these and other key issues:
- What are the potential pitfalls for secured parties seeking perfection and priority of security interests in payment intangibles?
- How can counsel determine whether a contractual payment obligation is a payment intangible not falling within any other UCC category of intangible rights?
- What is the difference between a payment intangible, an account, chattel paper, and a true promissory note?
- What impact will the impending 2022 amendments to the UCC have on answering these questions?
