Gross Up

Generally a right given to a creditor under a Facility Agreement to require an additional payment to be made by the debtor if the amount of interest paid by the debtor is reduced by the debtor being required to deduct Withholding Tax from the amount payable. The gross up clause entitles the creditor to receive the full amount due, even if this is achieved by the payment costing the debtor more than that.
