More about Financial Debt
A company's non-operational debt may not be critical to a company’s operations. For example, notes payable are written obligations to creditors in exchange for funds and do not have an immediate impact on operations.
That being said, the structure of financial debt can be complex and may lead to serious consequences for the business.
