It all depends - if you are loaning him the money personally and want him personally responsible to repay the debt or your going to make the loan to the corporation itself.

 

Do you know the difference as between such - one way makes him personally responsible regardless if the corporation goes bankruptcy - the other relieves him of any personal liability if the corporation goes under.

I would prefer to lend him the money personally as I would like it repaid. I will also alter my will so that any indebtedness of my children concerning me is paid off before the estate is divided up. Hopefully that will be many years from now!!!

OK, I just wanted to make sure you knew the difference. It seemed by your question that you might be lending the money to the corporation.

 

Here is a quick promissory note form that you can modify and add or subtract provisions:

 

Promissory Note

 

On this date of [DATE], in return for valuable consideration received, the undersigned borrower[s] jointly and severally promise to pay to [LENDER'S NAME], the "Lender", the sum of $[DOLLARS] Dollars, together with interest thereon at the rate of [RATE] percent ([RATE]%) per annum.
