Marketing
English term or phrase: notes, etc. pay
This is included in a consolidated balance sheet

I know the meaning of notes and of pay.

But in this context how would you translate pay?

Notes are "pagarés" and pay : Could it be pago?

Then it says Accounts, etc., pay

Not much context, but balance sheets are like that; it
Explanation:
just depends on how elegant the accountant wants them to sound. "Abono" is the same as "pago", generally used by the receivers of payments (banks, for ex.); "desembolso" is also "pago" but from the payer's end. "Pago" is a word with a lot of euphemisms, no one seems to want it known he's just dealing with crass money.
