What is a payment agreement?

A payment agreement outlines the terms and conditions of a loan. You may use it instead of a loan agreement or alongside that document to ensure both parties are clear on their obligations regarding the repayment of a loan.

Payment agreements are legally binding documents. As such, missing payments or failing to abide by its terms and conditions could see either party in breach of contract and court action taken against them.

Payment agreements can also act as a receipt for payments that have been made or scheduled and can be a helpful communication tool between all parties involved in a loan.

What should be included in a payment agreement?

Your payment agreement should be relatively short and include the following information:

  • Both parties’ details: Who is owed the money, and who is repaying the money? Include addresses and contact details so any disputes can be resolved swiftly.
  • The amount owed: How much is owed at the point the agreement is signed? Depending on how you use this agreement, you might provide an updated version each time a payment has been made to reflect the new amount outstanding.
  • Governing law: Under what jurisdiction will the payment agreement be governed?
  • Payment plan details: You can use these either as a receipt-type document or to detail the amount that should be paid and how and when it should be paid. Add the preferred or actual payment method, the amount required or received, and the date it is expected or accepted. Adding a reference number to track whether you quickly receive the cash on time is also a good idea.

When should I use a payment agreement?

Use a payment agreement if you are:

  • Planning to lend money to another business or an individual.
  • Planning to borrow money from another company or an individual.
  • Need to settle an existing debt and want to agree on a payment schedule outside of what was detailed in the original Loan Agreement.
  • Want to track payments made by or to your business concerning a loan.

Using a payment agreement helps both parties be clear on how and when payments should be made while also giving visibility on the overall loan term and what proportion of payments consists of principal and interest. A payment agreement can also be helpful if you wish to create an amortization table for factoring payments in or out of your business accounts.

Using a payment agreement is the best way to simplify elements of the loan process and helps both parties stay organized.
