The purpose of the intra-family loan is for the younger family member to have access to cash (loan) to buy the business interest from the senior family member. The senior family member loans the money (at an interest rate applicable to the current federal rate).

The loan recipient must pay interest on the loan or the IRS will treat the transfer as a taxable gift.
