    Hola
    En el ámbito empresarial/finanzas que es breakage?
    Company X provides strategic services to Company ZZ in areas such as breakage and liability management, business and marketing planning,....
    No tengo idea de qué puede ser, pensé en "quiebra", pero no tiene sentido!
    Gracias
    Heidi

    Si estas seguro que dice ¨breakage,¨tal vez se refiere a daños a mercancía en transito. Es un concepto muy diferente a los otros servicios mencionados.

    Hola, mira este párrafo que encontré en Wikipedia, aplica perfecto a mi contexto, pero sigue sin decir el término en español:

    Breakage is a term used in accounting to indicate gift cards that have been sold but never redeemed. Revenue from breakage is almost entirely profitable, since companies need not provide any goods or services for unredeemed gift cards.
