Paths To Debt Relief
The bankruptcy code offers businesses a number of options for achieving debt relief goals, including:
- Chapter 11 bankruptcy: Chapter 11 allows your business to reorganize or eliminate debt as part of a business reorganization plan. Most businesses that file a Chapter 11 bankruptcy are able to stay in business and continue operating upon the approval of a reorganization plan.
- Chapter 12 bankruptcy: Chapter 12 bankruptcy is specifically designed to provide debt relief solutions to family farmers and fishermen. Chapter 12 is similar to Chapter 13 bankruptcy, but tailored to the unique challenges faced by farmers and fishermen.
- Small Business Reorganization Act: Enacted in 2019, this new section of Chapter 11 bankruptcy provides a more efficient path to debt relief for small businesses than traditional Chapter 11 bankruptcy plans. The original debt limit for this business bankruptcy was $2,725,625, but the limit was temporarily raised to $7,500,000 in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic.
