Overview of a Debt Repayment Schedule
What is a Debt Repayment Schedule?
An Agreement on Repayment Schedule is a letter from one company acknowledging that another company or individual owes a certain amount of money and sets forth the dates and terms of repayment, typically in the form of a loan agreement between a borrower and lender that details a loan repayment schedule. The importance and primary purpose of a repayment schedule agreement is to protect the lender party or service provider because it legally enforces the company’s pledge to repay the loan either in regular payments or a lump sum. This letter is also useful to the company owing money as it explicitly clarifies the details of the loan or repayment method, further keeping them accountable for the payment.
