Practice notes

This Practice Note explains why loan agreements contain a tax gross up and the lender-friendly position that is standard in most loan agreements. It also provides suggested amendments to standard Loan Market Association (LMA) drafting to strengthen a borrower’s position and outlines how the risk of US withholding tax imposed under the Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act (FATCA) rules is normally allocated in a standard UK loan agreement. This Practice Note is produced in partnership with Eloise Walker of Pinsent Masons LLP.
