deductible
Something that is taken away or subtracted. Under an insurance policy, for example, the deductible is the maximum amount that an insured person must pay toward his own losses before he can recover from the insurer. For example, Julie's car insurance policy has a $500 deductible. One day she forgets to set her parking brake and the car rolls backwards into a telephone pole, sustaining $2,500 in damage. Julie's insurance company deducts $500 from the total amount and issues a check to the auto body shop for $2,000.

+ deductible
USA
In the context of mergers and acquisitions, an indemnification concept limiting a party's obligation with respect to small claims. A deductible provides that an indemnifying party does not have an obligation to indemnify until the amunt of the indemnified party's losses exceed a certain agreed amunt. Once that amunt is reached, the indemnifying party is only liable for the amunt of losses in excess of the agreed amunt (sometimes referred to as an "excess liability" basket).
Compare this to a threshold which provides that the indemnifying party is liable for the total aunt of losses once the agreed aunt is reached.
