Security Over Receivables: An International Handbook is a practical guide to the key issues involved in taking security over receivables in 39 jurisdictions. Adopting a jurisdiction by jurisdiction structure, each chapter examines the key matters to consider when taking security over debts in a particular region.

Each analysis is followed by a case study, to exemplify and elucidate the central principles which arise in practice. A comparative table is also included to outline and illustrate the distinguishing aspects of taking security over debts in each country. The chapter from UNCITRAL gives a useful explanation of the position from an international law perspective. This work is a valuable preliminary reference point for practitioners advising on finance transactions, which involve security over receivables in a foreign jurisdiction.

Jurisdictions covered include: Argentina, Australia, Austria, Belgium, Brazil, Canada, Chile, China, Czech Republic, Denmark, England, Finland, France, Germany, Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Japan, Kuwait, Luxembourg, Mexico, Netherlands, New York, New Zealand, Poland, Russian Federation, Scotland, Singapore, South Korea, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Turkey, Ukraine, United Arab Emirates and Venezuela.

With contributions from well-respected lawyers from leading international firms in each jurisdiction, this book provides practitioners worldwide with considerable assistance when dealing with cross-border transactions in a number of different jurisdictions.
