Under general principles, granting a guarantee results in a guarantor assuming risk because a lender may claim its receivables from both the debtor and the guarantor. Under the corporate income tax law such risk must be valued for tax purposes and, if the guarantee is received without consideration, it constitutes income-in-kind for the recipient of the guarantee.
