Where can I find debenture details?

Created by Katie Deverill, Modified on Wed, 19 Oct 2022 at 06:13 PM by Katie Deverill

A debenture is the traditional name given to a loan agreement where the borrower is a company.


Typically, a debenture will set out the terms of the loan: the amount borrowed, repayment terms, interest, charges securing the loan, provisions for protecting and insuring the property etc., and terms for enforcement if the company defaults.


Debentures are usually secured by charges on the company's property, but do not have to be (such are referred to as 'bare' or 'naked' debentures). There are different types of charges. Debentures, as such, do not have to be registered, but charges securing them do.


The money raised by debentures becomes part of a company's capital structure, but does not become share capital.

Therefore the debenture data will be found under Mortgages and Charges in our reports.


Search for a company now to see if they have a debenture listed.
