Formalise Your Personal Loans To Friends and Family


Formalising Your Person To Person Loans 

Overview

Today we are going to discuss one of our Loan Agreements, in particular, our Person to Person Loan Agreements.

Now our Person-to-Person Loan Agreement is exactly that, it's a loan agreement between individuals where one individual provides a loan to another individual.

These Loan Agreements are generally simple loan agreements between family members in Australia or for that matter anywhere in the world. It doesn't really require a security interest to be registered on the PPSR or Personal Property Securities Register because quite often it is for a smaller amount and is quite often a simple loan agreement between friends or a loan agreement between family members. If the required loan is for a larger amount, then it is generally going to be more of an investment loan or financing agreement which would be better suited to one of our other Loan Agreements.

This particular Loan Agreement is just a Person-to-Person Loan Agreement or a simple loan agreement between family members or friends where you want to have something in place just to formalise the loan agreement and possibly, build in a direct debit facility for loan repayments, and possibly build in some consequences in case there is a default in the Loan Agreement.

Get Up To Date With ATO Div 7A Loan Requirements


Australia Tax Office Compliant Div 7A Loan Agreements (2022)

Overview

Div 7A Loan Agreements are now being put under the Microscope by the Australian Taxation Office in an effort to identify potential Tax avoidance by company directors and shareholders. It is more important than ever to ensure business owners and directors have a formal agreement in place to negate potential tax liabilities.

Div 7A Loan Agreement is called a Div 7A Loan Agreement as it relates to Division 7A of Part lll of the Income Assessment Act 1936. Division 7A of Part lll of the Income Assessment Act 1936, in particular Division 7A of the Corporations Act, allows for a business to loan money to the directors, shareholders, or associates of shareholders.

These loans are used for a number of reasons and are usually implemented in conjunction with the accountant of a business rather than the director themselves due to the potential taxation liabilities. The reason we have released these Div 7A Loan Agreements is basically just to formalise them.
