Is there any reason we can not accept loans from Members? If not is there a Simple Loan agreement that we can use

There is no reason a loan cannot exist between yourself and the members, however, I would highly suggest that you have a loan agreement in place. There will be templates online etc. that you can use. However, these are not necessarily legally sound. I would advise that you use a lawyer to draft up an agreement between you and the members. This shouldn't be too costly if it a simple loan agreement but they will want to sit down and discuss the terms of repayment with you etc. to ensure that the document and loan agreements are legally enforceable. However, to answer your question there is nothing stopping you from doing this.

I hope this information has helped. You can find a local solicitor who deals with this on the law society webpage which is;

I would be obliged if you could Click the 5 stars at the top of the webpage (this will not cost any extra). This will tell the website that I have responded to your question, you can, of course, continue to ask any follow up questions free of charge. I won’t be paid for my time from the website if there is no rating left for me.

Many Thanks


IF you feel it would help then I can offer my company emails address via this service and we could look at providing you a quote for drafting a loan agreement for the club.
