Neither GECC nor the Trustee will impose any service charge for any such transfer or exchange of a debt security, however, a registered holder may be required to pay any taxes or other governmental charges in connection with a transfer or exchange of debt securities.
Global Notes, Delivery and Form
We may issue some or all of the debt securities in the form of one or more Global Notes representing an entire issuance in book-entry form. We will deposit each Global Note with a depositary (a ""Depositary'') or with a nominee for a Depositary identiÑed in the applicable prospectus supplement. We will register each Global Note in the name of such Depositary or nominee. Unless and until it is exchanged in whole or in part for debt securities in deÑnitive registered form, a Global Note may not be transferred, except as a whole by the Depositary for such Global Note to a nominee of such Depositary or by a nominee of such Depositary to such Depositary or another nominee of such Depositary or by such Depositary or any such nominee to a successor of such Depositary or a nominee of such successor. For purposes of this Prospectus, ""Global Note'' refers to the Global Note or Global Notes representing an entire issue of debt securities.
The speciÑc terms of the depositary arrangement with respect to any debt securities to be represented by a Global Note will be described in the prospectus supplement.
ModiÑcation of the Indentures
