About this Document

The LVDox™ Free Promissory Note is a very simple document, designed for simple situations. It includes an interest clause, and a choice as to whether the Promissory Note will be transferrable or not.

A promissory note is not a loan contract, although both relate to borrowing money. The main differences between a loan contract and promissory note are:

  • Both the lender and the borrower sign a loan contract, while only the issuer signs a promissory note;
  • The terms and conditions of a loan contract are generally more detailed than a promissory note, which means that it would generally be appropriate to complete a loan contract in circumstances where compound interest of instalment payments apply.
