I'm not sure this is useful to you, but the terms
usually used with these things, as pointed out by
Derek, is as follows

what you are calling a liability is a liability for
that other company, but in your books it is an asset,
e.g., an account receivable.

It may seem arcane, but it is the accepted way to
reference these.
