Many business owners assume that when financial challenges strike their business the only option is to file under business bankruptcy protections such as Chapter 11 – a process that can be highly complex and exceedingly costly. In reality, small businesses have a range of options, including filing under Chapter 7, which can provide a broader range of benefits and protections for individuals.
Chapter 7 can be a powerful tool for business owners who wish to:
• Put an immediate end to creditor harassment
• Eliminate credit card debts
• Stop creditor judgment proceedings
• Stop wage garnishment and repossession
Whether you run a retail business, restaurant or a web-based business from your home, in many cases you can handle your issues through traditional consumer bankruptcy protections. Many of our clients are professionals who provide services, such as accountants, architects, lawyers, real estate brokers, electricians and plumbers. With no hard assets, it can be difficult to keep a business running as lines of credit, loans and other forms of debt begin to accumulate. Our goal is get you back to selling services and not paying overhead costs. While you may be hesitant to file bankruptcy with an SBA loan, don’t be.
Before you are up-sold into an expensive and time-consuming Chapter 11 bankruptcy, make sure that there isn’t an easier and smarter way to resolve your problems. If you are a small business owner, there may be a real opportunity to pursue your debt relief through the Chapter 7 process.
