They are concerned with the following questions: 1. If an English company, which is a member of a group of companies, gives a guarantee to a creditor of its parent company or of a fellow subsidiary, can that guarantee constitute a distribution of assets to its members? 2. If an English company, which is a member of a group of companies, makes an on-demand loan to its parent company or to a fellow subsidiary, can that loan constitute a distribution of assets to its members? The two notes have been prepared by the CLLS and the Law Society.
