Document Overview

A Division 7A Loan Agreement is a document that formalises loans between a private company and an individual. If a company were to loan money to a shareholder or associate without a Division 7A agreement, the amount may be counted towards the individual’s income for that tax year. This agreement is particularly relevant when a company's loans are audited as loans that are not “formalised” with a Division 7A Loan agreement may be considered a dividend. You MUST seek advice from a qualified professional before using this agreement to check that it meets your specific circumstances.

Complying under Division 7A

  • A written agreement such as this one must be established before the company’s income tax return deadline.

  • The annual interest rate of the loan must be at least equal to the Division 7A benchmark rate.

  • For loans that are secured by property, as per the ATO’s guidelines, the term should not exceed 25 years 

  • For all other loans the terms should be no longer than 7 years.

  • The minimum yearly repayment must be met.
