fixed charge
A mortgage, debenture or other security documentation, is likely to create charges over particular assets as security for borrowings or other indebtedness. There are essentially two types of charge, floating and fixed. A fixed charge is appropriate to permanent assets which are to be retained by the company and are unlikely to be regularly traded, such as property, fixed plant, intellectual property rights, etc. Assets continue to be subject to a fixed charge until released even when sold or otherwise disposed of - the security interest remains on the title of the asset.
