There are various ways to repay a director's loan.

  • Dividend: A paper dividend can be declared, which is a dividend that is offset with the directors' loan instead of being transferred to the director's personal account.
  • Cash repayment: A repayment is made by transferring money into the company account from a personal account.
  • Expenses or salary: The loan can be offset using other money owed to the director, such as the directors' underpaid salary or expense reimbursements.
