An inter-company loan agreement allows two child entities to borrow and loan funds from each other that have the same parent company. The loans are usually favorable to one-side in order to help with cash reserves or help make an investment whereas the other child entity lacks the finances to do.
Where the Lender has requested that the borrower provide guarantors, those guarantors should also carefully read the entire Loan Agreement and their guarantee obligations, and sign where indicated.
If a Lender is a company, and the Loan is being provided to a shareholder of that company, parties should be aware of division 7A of the Income Tax Assessment Act 1936 (Cth). Where the parties believe that division 7A applies to the Loan, they may wish to use an alternative agreement – the Division 7A Loan Agreement.
Secured Loans – If the borrower is considered a high-risk then the lender may want to request an asset that will be in the lender’s possession if the debt is not paid. This type of loan is most commonly used in pawn shops.
