Bond Financing Agreement


Private business tests. A 501(c)(3) loan is disqualified for exemption if more than 5% of the proceeds is used directly or indirectly for “private commercial use” and if the payment of more than 5% of the bonds is directly or indirectly secured by real estate or is intended to be derived from “private” real estate (or payments relating to that property). “private commercial use” means use by the 501(c)(3) organization that would be treated as “unrelated taxable business income” or use by others in a non-governmental business or transaction. If, from a less technical point of view, real property financed by 501 (c) (3) can be used in the exempt transactions of the 501 (c) (3) organization and by the public or government entities, problems arise when the property is used by other persons or organizations or by the 501 (c) (3) organization itself for non-exempt purposes. Leases, management agreements and other similar user agreements for financed real estate are of particular concern. A 501(c)(3) loan is also disqualified for the exemption if the private credit financing test is met. The test of private credit financing is met if the less than 5% of the proceeds of the loan or 5,000,000 USD is used directly or indirectly to lend to persons other than public entities. An indirect loan can be found, for example, when loans are used to finance facilities that are used by less than the general public and paid for by user fees. All private cases should be analyzed by Bond Counsel in light of the detailed rules.

A lawyer experienced in municipal duty law should be mandated in the form of Bond Counsel. Bond Counsel`s role is to structure and document the transaction and advise on the validity and tax status of the loan. The fees of the good account are to be paid by the non-profit organization on the proceeds of the loan. Bond Counsel may represent other parties or the non-profit organization, issuer and purchaser or songwriter of bonds may be represented separately. Smith, Gambrell & Russell, LLP is a publicly traded Red Book company. In the past, coupons were physical attachments to paper loan certificates, with each coupon constituting an interest payment. On the due date of interest, the bondholder would transfer the coupon to a bank against payment of interest. Today, interest payments are almost always made electronically. Interest can be paid at different frequencies: usually semi-annual, i.e.

every six months, or annually. A bond purchase agreement (EPS) is a contract that contains certain clauses that are executed on the day of the valuation of the new bond issue. . . .
