Inter-Company Loan Agreement
The Simple Loan Agreement is a standard Swiss-law governed short-form, bilateral loan agreement between two group companies. Intra-group funding arrangements may be put in place for a variety of reasons, for example to implement group financing strategy and tax planning, or to support the acquisition of assets.
The Simple Loan Agreement may be used for interest bearing or non-interest bearing loan arrangements with either a fixed or an undefined term. It includes standard representations and warranties appropriate for use in an intra-group agreement.
Terms which are configurable to the user’s needs include:
- Purpose and background;
- Term and termination;
- Drawing and repayment;
- Interest rate and mechanics;
- Granting of sub-loans;
- Borrower covenants;
- Set-off and assignment;
- Provisions relating to notices; and
- Jurisdiction and arbitration.
Circumstances of Use
This document is intended solely for intra-group financing purposes and includes (as standard) an event of default if the borrower ceases to be a member of the group. It is not appropriate for arm’s length (third party) loan agreements.
The Simple Loan Agreement may be used for cross-border transactions where the parties have agreed to use Swiss law.
