Get business loan arrangements right
A client bought a new car for his business. The business paid for the car but the finance arrangement was in his own name. The interest is not tax deductible on the money borrowed.
While we can remedy the situation, it adds to our work and your costs. Make sure if you are borrowing money for your company, the documentation is made out to the company and is signed on behalf of the company by you as a director.
Sometimes you can get a lower rate of interest by getting a loan in your own name rather than in your company name. If this is the case, talk to us. You could be appointed agent for the company. This would need to be properly documented.
