Getting Up To Date With ATO Loan Requirements

Australia Tax Office Compliant Div 7A
Loan Agreements (2024)

With 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, which allows for a business to loan money to the directors, shareholders, or associates of shareholders.

The ATO is now looking at these loan agreements and putting him under a microscope, and they are wanting to see a formal agreement in place between the company and its director, so it’s not viewed as a way of negating taxation.

The ATO wants to see the term of the loan (usually 7 years), the amount of the loan, the loan payments, the loan repayment times, the interest being charged, etc.

Formalising a Div 7A Loan Agreement should be high priority for all businesses that use Div 7A Loan Agreements.
