    Re: collocations of "render"

    Hi Ann1977,

    Thank you for your relevant amendments.

    Here is a brief explanation of the term which was beyond you.

    renders in kind (plural)= payments in kind = payments for goods and services made in the form of other goods and services, not cash or other forms of money.

    Payment in kind: Definition from Answers.com

    Regards,

    V.
