Single Name Paper

Single Name Paper

A type of Commercial Paper, such as a check or promissory note that has only one original signer or more than one maker signing for the exact same purpose.

A single name paper is distinguishable from a suretyship where, for a certain sum, one individual cosigns to support another individual's debt.
