If a company issues commercial paper and the bookkeeper, bank A, receives a buy order from bank B, in which bank B creates credit to buy the commercial paper, does the company has a credit in bank B or does bank B owe himself and has the asset of the commercial paper?


1 Answer 1


This is off topic in my humble opinion, but.

The Company owes Bank B and Bank B has the paper as an asset on its balance sheet.
