Liability

In banking, a liability is a commitment expressed in monetary terms. It can be direct or contingent.
Direct liability is that which sooner or later must be repaid, e.g. negotiation, trade finance loan, surrendered bill of lading, special documentary credit establishment. Contingent liability is one which may or may not eventuate, e.g. import documentary credit established which is never drawn under.
