Contingent Liability

Safeguard your business and its liquidity by getting a contingent liability cover in place for those hard-hitting times such as having to pay back a business loan when there isn't enough to go by and risk placing your personal estate at the mercy of creditors, leaving little, if anything for your family to inherit.

What is it?

When a business entity like a private company, closed corporation or even a trust, borrows money from a financial institution, they will need to sign surety for that debt. In the event of death, these partners will be held liable for the full outstanding amount. This can become a major problem for the business if there aren’t sufficient liquid funds to pay out that debt. A contingent liability plan will help cover these costs.

Important to note

Strict enforcement of the Credit Act means that financial institutions will require businesses to pay any outstanding debt on behalf of a deceased member. The creditworthiness of the business will be affected by the partners death.
