Jewish religious law strictly prohibits the paying of receiving of interest on loans made between Jews. However, when monies are advanced in the course of a business transaction an agreement may be entered into, whereby the provider and receiver of these funds are considered equal partners. This partnership is based upon the stipulation that, upon request, every loss must be proved by two trustworthy witnesses, and all profits verified by oath. All consequent profits or losses are then equally shared. However, in order to avoid these very stringent requirements, the provider of the funds, under this “Shtar Isko”, agrees to waive his share of the profits in lieu of receiving a fixed percentage of the money in advanced. The percentage is then considered profit, rather than interest on a loan. This agreement becomes effective when the receiver of the funds executes a form as set forth below. Click the download button
