Spanish term or phrase: Pago de liberación
In a beneficiary audit engagement. The letter states X person is entitled to a sum of money, "con un pago de liberación" for a smaller amount of money. I am guessing this is a lien on the claim that is being paid out?

settlement payment in accord and satisfaction


Explanation:
compare un pago liberatorio : a settement payment (West); a payment that extinguishes the > obligation (Butterworths) > the debt; full and final settlement (Alcaraz & Hughes).

Acceptance of a lower amount suggests an accord and satisfaction.






Example sentence(s):
  • IATE: efecto liberatorio de un pago en effects of discharge of a payment
  • Accord and satisfaction is a contract law concept about the purchase of the release from a debt obligation. The release is completed by the transfer of valuable consideration that must not be the actual performance of the obligation itself.

agree  AllegroTrans: right idea not sure if so many words are needed- "payment in full satisfaction" would do the trick
