Payable

PAYABLE

Justly due; legally enforceable.

A sum of money is said to be payable when a person is under an obligation to pay it. The term may therefore signify an obligation to pay at a future time, but when used without qualifi-cation, it ordinarily means that the debt is due to be paid immediately.
