Division 7a loan agreementDivision 7A Loan Agreement

Division 7A Loan Agreement + Free Sample includes documents regarding borrowing money from a private company which can have serious pitfalls if not done correctly. Directors and shareholders often borrow money from their companies. Care must be taken so that the ATO does not deem these loans to be dividends, and tax them accordingly.




Division 7A of the Income Tax Assessment Act 1936 requires such loans to be ‘arm’s length’. The rules are stringent and require a special type of loan agreement known as a Division 7A loan agreement.

The act is aimed at preventing private companies from making tax-free distributions of profits to shareholders (or their associates) in the form of loans.  Unless the loan comes within specified exclusions in Division 7A it is treated as an assessable dividend and taxed as a dividend.
