For Value Received

Primary tabs

“For value received” is a phrase commonly used in a bill of exchange, deed, promissory note, or other contract to indicate the exchange of unspecified consideration. The exchange of consideration is a critical component of any legally binding contract and the use of such boilerplate language in the foregoing contexts reinforces documentation of its exchange.
