SME Growth

We have listed below some suggested legal templates that can be used to help build your business. 

Of course, there may well be several other matters that will require coverage by legal agreements, and this collection is not meant to be comprehensive. Rather, it is a prompt for you to see what else you need to get sorted out as your business moves towards greater success. Please also browse our main menu for ideas of what other legal documents you require.

The templates include useful documents if you are involved in the so-called 'gig economy', as well as for more traditional ways of growing your business.

Template: Loan Agreement: company borrower; secured on physical assets; guarantor option

"An agreement between a lender, who may be an individual or a corporate body, and a borrower, who is a company. It is drawn so that the lender is also a corporate body, but it could as easily be an individual or a trust. The loan is secured with a fixed charge on specific physical assets, and optionally, a guarantor. 

We have provided for security in the form of physical assets to be lodged or described. There is also full provision for a personal guarantee. The security could be any goods or property, not necessarily that which is bought using the loan"

Template: Software Development Agreement

"Comprehensive contract for entering into a custom software development arrangement; both locally and internationally.
