A loan agreement is a written document that sets the terms of money or personal property that is to be borrowed by someone else for a period of time. The borrower is given the full sum of the loan on the first (1st) on the day of commencement and must pay back the lender along with any interest stated. The interest is usually computed as a yearly percentage (also referred as an APR).
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.
The borrower should read the entire agreement. The borrower is responsible for understanding what is read. If the document is confusing, the borrower must question the document and get clarity before signing. When the borrower signs the document the individual is stating the document is clear, understood, and correct. The borrower and lender should have identification so the notary public can perform the official screening necessary at the loan signing.
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.
