An assignment is a delivery of positions, tasks, or tangible or immaterial things, as a sign of recognition, payment, delivery, attribution or gift to someone.

Examples of use: "I have been assigned a very hard work, many hours a day and with very heavy tasks" or "I was assigned the last place in the airplane seats".

In Law, when there are several debts to pay with a certain amount of money, the assignment of which of them will be paid preferentially, can be made by agreement between the debtor or the creditors; or be decided by the judge according to legal or contractual provisions.

In Accounting, the assignment consists of selecting a concept to assign or distribute, which can be an income, an expense or a cost, and distribute it among the recipients, one or more (products, periods of time, sections, etc.).
