The question of whether a party can attempt to reduce its liability for a contract by accounting for that liability on the claims of another contract is still alive. As Richard Bailey explains, the unanimous decision of the Court of Appeal in Geldof Metaalconstructie NV/Simon Carves Ltd (“Geldof”) provided relevant clarification with respect to compensation and contractual compensation. In summary, two contracts can be combined without knowing it, but on the basis of Geldof, in limited cases where the courts consider it manifestly unfair for one party to invoke a contractual right where one claim exists for the other party under a separate contract that the courts will consider to be fair compensation between contracts. The courts may have, in their own words, slightly expanded the rule, but because it is justice, it is more applied on a case-by-case basis. 5 The right to delay may be excluded by explicit or tacit consent of the parties or by law. It goes without saying that intervention is only permitted if each party is entitled to transfer that party`s debt for the purpose of amulsation. Therefore, a reeder is excluded if the creditors of one of the parties have acquired rights to claims that a party intends to submit to a re-editor. The right of extrapolation cannot be exercised against a cross-application resulting from a deliberately unlawful act of the party that explains the annulment. It is an intrinsic feature of such claims that they must be paid in cash by the wrongdoer. For the same reason, the right of extrapolation cannot be established against a cross-claim, as long as that claim is not seized. The law does not allow counterparties to use other people`s liabilities to equalize unrelated liability.  All forms of action require reciprocity between claim and cross-claim. This protects property rights both inside and outside, especially in that a non-owner does not benefit from bankruptcy.
In certain circumstances, where two parties have monetary debts against each other, the right to compensation may arise. A right of compensation allows a “part 1”) to take into account the amount owed to it by the second part (“part 2”) against any amount owed by Part 1 to Part 2; each party must be a debtor and a creditor. In some jurisdictions (including the United Kingdom), certain types of compensation are automatic after a company`s insolvency. This means that, for each party who is both creditor and debtor of the insolvent company, the reciprocal debts are compensated against each other and either the creditor of the trustee can claim the balance or the liquidator can demand that the remaining balance be paid, depending on which party is most indebted. The main argument This has been criticized as an undclared security interest, contrary to the principle of the passu bet. The alternative in which a creditor must repay all its debts, but receives only a limited portion of the remaining funds received by other unsecured creditors, risks going bankrupt and thus having a systemic risk in the market.   Nevertheless, there are three main reasons for supporting and justifying the use of use. First, the law should maintain pre-insolvency autonomy and compensation, since the parties still rely on pre-insolvency obligations. This is a central political point. Second, insolvency, both outside and within insolvency, reduces the costs of negotiation and enforcement.  Third, risk management, particularly systemic risk, is essential. The clearing house rules provide that the relationship with the buyer and the seller is replaced by two relationships between the buyer and the clearing house and the seller and the clearing-out.
