Document Description

A director/shareholder loan agreement is a contractual agreement that sets out the details, such as interest rate, repayment and other necessary terms, of a loan made by a director/shareholder to a business.

With such an agreement, it provides a way for directors/shareholders to provide financing to the company, especially for startups that may not qualify for conventional bank loans, but at the same time establishes that the money is indeed a loan and not a gift to the company. In some circumstances, this agreement can be structured as interest-free and repayable on demand, providing higher flexibility when compared to a commercial loan agreement. Afterall, it protects both the lender and borrower by comprehensively documenting the loan terms in a legally binding contract.
