Chapter 11 Bankruptcy May Be Able to Save Your Business

By Rick Hodge  Mar. 21, 2011 11:17a

You may be one of those individuals who believe in hard work and fair business dealings.  You take pride in providing a valuable product or service to the community, but business is declining and bills are piling up with no relief in sight. Many businesses are in trouble due to the present economic recession and it may be time to look at what options are available to you so you don't lose your business altogether.

What are the Benefits of Chapter 11?

Filing a  Chapter 11 can buy you some time and provide you with some much needed financial relief. You are basically creating a plan for reorganizing your debt so you can pay your creditors, but not lose your business while attempting to do so. You should work with an experienced attorney to help ensure you file correctly. Following are some of the benefits of filing a Chapter 11:

  • You can negotiate loan payments and get them reduced
  • Increase the amount of time you have to pay off  loans
  • Challenge claims from creditors
  • Reject leases and contracts without fear of repercussions
  • Buy yourself time to catch up on other payments you may have fallen behind on
  • Create some breathing room so you can sell a piece of property you have equity in
  • You will experience relief as creditors will have to stop calling once the filing is underway and you will be able to focus more on your day to day business.
