    Looking to take a £6875 directors loan out from our Limited company now which I will pay back to the company by August 2020 - our year end is December so this loan will be repaid within 9 months of our year end.

    First question is, based on the above, do I need to pay interest at 2.5% if paying the loan back to the company within 9 months of year end ?

    Also looking for advice around nominal codes for the loan out in Sage and then the repayments back in ?

    Just looking to keep it all clear and seperate in the accounts and make sure its reported correctly for the profit and loss and the balance sheet.

    Any advice greatly appreciated.

    No, you don't need to pay interest. This is for your BIK which doesn't kick in until the loan exceeds £10k.
    Nominal code is usually around 2300 or 2400 depending on how you have set up your chart of accounts (balance sheet code, doesn't hit p&l at all). This is used for both money going out and money going in.

    I have mine set up as a bank account in Sage, it just makes it a bit easier if you happen to purchase something for the company from your own funds but the overall affect on the balance sheet will be the same as NikoJ's suggestion.
