Doctor Credit

Is there a quick and clear definition of a preference [a preferential transfer]?

Answer: Any payment received from a debtor within the 90 days prior to the date of the bankruptcy filing might be considered by the trustee, the debtor in possession or their attorney to be preferential.

[Note: This is only a layman's definition...not the legal definition which is far more complex].
