Business Finance Agreements

Our commercial lawyers can provide you with expert advice on financial commitments and security required in relation to business finance agreements.

What is a business finance agreement?

A business finance agreement is a contract between two parties. The lender provides the borrower with money or valuable assets, and the borrower has to repay the lender together with interest.

The business finance agreement sets out the terms of each party’s obligations, responsibilities and liabilities, together with the amount borrowed, repayment terms, due dates, interest and other associated costs. It also sets out details of what should happen if any of the terms set out in the agreement are not complied with.

Business finance agreements may be needed in acquisitions, international M&As, purchasing business property, starting a business or expanding your business.

What type of businesses would need business finance agreements?

It doesn’t matter what type of business you are. If you are entering into a financial agreement with another party, as a borrower or a lender, you’ll need a legally binding business finance agreement in place.

Our business finance agreement specialists have worked with a significant number of business types, both domestic and cross-border, such as banks, investors, property developers, manufacturers, retailers, service providers and product suppliers. The businesses we work with range from business start-ups and SMEs to international and large corporations.

Business Finance Agreements

Why do you need a lawyer for your business finance agreement?

You could draft your own business finance agreement. However, we highly advise you to speak to a lawyer who specialises in business finance agreements. Business finance agreements are legally binding documents. You therefore need to ensure that the agreement offers you financial, reputational and legal protection and works in your best interests.

There are many intricacies involved in drafting a business finance agreement and without understanding the law, and the legal implications a poorly drafted clause may have, drafting an agreement yourself could have a detrimental effect on your business.

In many instances, financial companies will take security over business assets such as property or vehicles and in many instances involving a limited company will insist on the personal guarantee of a director. This means that whilst the business is a separate entity, in the event it cannot pay its finance your personal assets are at risk. Our specialist team ensures you’re fully aware of the exposure to your business and personal assets in any event.
