The simplest definition of the counterpurchase saysR1: “An agreement between two persons or companies to buy goods or services from each other, usually at different times. For example, Company A may buy goods from Company B in March 2014, and then sell different goods to Company B in July 2014. Logically thinking, they state that counterpurchases are to be made only for the mutual benefit of both companies.” In other words, Company A is obliged to buy from the Company B goods and/or services that are usually unrelated to the goods and/or services sold by the Company A. The counterpurchase involves two separate contracts and, as counterpurchase practices show, the deliveries can take place within a period of some month to five years.
