consignment stock


consignment stock
Stock held by one party (the dealer) but legally owned by another; the dealer has the right to sell the stock or to return it unsold to its legal owner. Because it can be difficult to distinguish between the commercial realities of the transaction and the legal agreement, consignment stock is sometimes used as a means of creative accounting
