CUT-OFF DATE

Statistics Directorate    
Definition:
The date (established at the time of a country’s first Paris Club debt reorganization/restructuring) before which loans must have been contracted in order for their debt service to be eligible for restructuring. New loans extended after the cutoff date are protected from future restructuring (subordination strategy). In exceptional cases, arrears on post-cutoff-date debt can be deferred over short periods of time in restructuring agreements.
