Understanding How SBRA or Subchapter 5 Aims To Help North Carolina Small Businesses

A few months ago, a new law - known as the Small Business Reorganization Act of 2019 (SBRA), or Subchapter V under Chapter 11 of the Bankruptcy Code - took effect. The law aims to help small businesses that wish to reorganize their debts under Chapter 11 bankruptcy. Although initially passed late last year, the SBRA provides timed relief for many in the wake of economic impacts of COVID-19.

Past Issues With Chapter 11 For Business Owners

In the past, Chapter 11 bankruptcy often failed for business owners looking to reorganize their debt. The costs, procedural requirements and hurdles associated with filing a Chapter 11 were simply too burdensome for business owners trying to stay afloat. Many business owners looking for relief simply couldn't wait and were forced to convert their bankruptcy petition to a Chapter 7 liquidation plan, thereby closing their doors.

The new law is designed to streamline the process and shorten the time frame for relief, allowing many business owners to avoid dissolving their entities.
