  • A promissory note, also referred to as a note payable in accounting, is a contract detailing the terms of a promise by one party (the maker) to pay a sum of money to the other (the payee). The obligation may arise from the repayment of a loan or from another form of debt. For example, in the sale of a business, the purchase price might be a combination of an immediate cash payment and payments against one or more promissory notes for the balance.

  • The terms of a note typically include the principal amount, the interest rate if any, and the maturity date. Sometimes there will be provisions concerning the payee's rights in the event of a default, which may include foreclosure of the maker's assets. Demand promissory notes are notes that do not carry a specific maturity date, but are due on demand of the lender. Usually the lender will only give the borrower a few days notice before the payment is due.

    For loans between individuals, writing and signing a promissory note is often considered a good idea for tax and record keeping reasons.

All Scottish banknotes are effectively standardized demand promissory notes. This Promissory Note is used to loan or borrow money with or without interest included.

I downloaded your promissory note template because I was going to loan a friend of mine some money. I wanted to make sure I would get my money back even if I had to take her to court if she did not pay me back. I used this promissory note and modified it to meet my needs. Thank you.
