What is an Assignment for the Benefit of Creditors?

An ABC is a state-court procedure that involves the assignment of all of a company’s assets to a third-person, named the “assignee,” who liquidates the property and assets through a variety of methods. The proceeds from the liquidation of the assets are used to pay the company’s creditors. The company making the assignment is called the “assignor”. The ABC process has several similarities to a corporate bankruptcy proceeding, but rather than being governed by federal bankruptcy law, the ABC is governed by Florida law.
