Economic necessity does not result in a financial liability being classified as a liability.
dear tutor i didnt quite get this line from technical article, “when does debt seem to be equity”?. what does economic necessity mean here? can you possibly explain sentence as a whole with an example?
I think he means that it the business’s intentions to redeem or not redeem are irrelevant. What matters is whether the terms of the instrument could force them to redeem.
Best I can do on that one!
