An employee loan agreement template is a document that describes a debt that is to be paid from an employee to a company that loaned the sum of money. The debt is usually paid back via future paychecks so there is usually little or no interest or fees that is taken from the amount. Once both parties authorize the agreement it should be held for each party’s record-keeping.
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.
It is the lender’s responsibility to determine the credit worthiness of the borrower. The borrower’s trustworthiness can be evaluated through credit reports and references. The borrower might also consider things like the length of time the borrower has lived somewhere or the amount of time at a job. The lender should read over the loan agreement draft to see if all the provisions and writings are accurate. The lender’s signature will convey that the document is read, understood, and accurate.
The loan agreement will typically have detailed information about the borrower, including their personal information, creditworthiness, income, and expenses. This information is required in order for the lender to determine if they are willing to proceed with the transaction.
