Overview[ edit ] The terms of a note usually include the principal amount, the interest rate if any, the parties, the date, the terms of repayment which could include interest and the maturity date.
Sometimes, provisions are included concerning the payee's rights in the event of a defaultwhich may include foreclosure of the maker's assets. For loans between individuals, writing and signing a promissory note are often instrumental for tax and record keeping.
A promissory note alone is typically unsecured.
A banknote is frequently referred to as a promissory note, as it is made by a bank and payable to bearer on demand. Mortgage notes are another prominent example. If the promissory note is unconditional and readily saleable, it is called a negotiable instrument.
Usually the lender will only give the borrower a few days' notice before the payment is due. Promissory notes may be used in combination with security agreements. For example, a promissory note may be used in combination with a mortgagein which case it is called a mortgage note.
Loan contracts[ edit ] In common International finance notes, other terms, such as " loan ", " loan agreement ", and "loan contract" may be used interchangeably International finance notes "promissory note". The term "loan contract" is often used to describe a contract that is lengthy and detailed.
Each is a legally binding contract to unconditionally repay a specified amount within a defined time frame. However, a promissory note is generally less detailed and less rigid than a loan contract.

Often, the seller or provider of a service is not paid upfront by the buyer usually, another companybut within a period of time, the length of which has been agreed upon by both the seller and the buyer.
The reasons for this may vary; historically, many companies used to balance their books and execute payments and debts at the end of each week or tax month; any product bought before that time would be paid only then.
Depending on the jurisdiction, this deferred payment period can be regulated by law; in countries like FranceItaly or Spainit usually ranges between 30 and 90 days after the purchase. In those cases, the company has the option of asking the bank for a short-term loan, or using any other such short-term financial arrangements to avoid insolvency.
However, in jurisdictions where promissory notes are commonplace, the company called the payee or lender can ask one of its debtors called the maker, borrower or payor to accept a promissory note, whereby the maker signs a legally binding agreement to honour the amount established in the promissory note usually, part or all its debt within the agreed period of time.
Once the promissory note reaches its maturity date, its current holder the bank can execute it over the emitter of the note the debtorwho would have to pay the bank the amount promised in the note. If the maker fails to pay, however, the bank retains the right to go to the company that cashed the promissory note in, and demand payment.
In the case of unsecured promissory notes, the lender accepts the promissory note based solely on the maker's ability to repay; if the maker fails to pay, the lender must honour the debt to the bank.
In the case of a secured promissory note, the lender accepts the promissory note based on the maker's ability to repay, but the note is secured by a thing of value; if the maker fails to pay and the bank reclaims payment, the lender has the right to execute the security.
